Franchise Law and Business Transactions

In-depth Knowledge
Attorney Stanley Dub has an in-depth understanding of Franchise law based on 35 years of experience.
If you're a franchise owner who's lost money on his investment, maybe we can help. If your franchiser got you to invest by making false promises, or if he made mistakes in his disclosure documents, we may be able to get some or all of your money back.
Even minor mistakes in your FDD or your FDD-delivery procedures can have serious legal consequences. We offer document compliance reviews, and we offer FDD preparation and registration services. Your FDD documents are crucial to the survival of your business.
