Franchise Law and Business Transactions

The Go-To Franchise Lawyer in Cincinnati, Ohio!

Understanding Franchise Law

Franchise law is a specialty area practiced by only a small number of attorneys. And each state has its own franchise laws and set of rules established by previous court cases. If you needed heart surgery you wouldn’t want it performed by a general practitioner; similarly, if you have a franchise legal problem you should want an attorney that has dealt with your situation many times in the past.

Why Choose the Franchise Lawyer Clients in Cincinnati, Ohio Swear by?

  • Franchisor Compliance: If you are a business considering selling franchises, or if you need an attorney to write your Franchise Agreement or Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”), you need an experienced Ohio Franchise Attorney. Using an attorney with many years of franchise law practice gives you the benefit of the attorney’s business experience, and helps ensure that your franchise will comply with state and federal laws and regulations.
  • Franchisee Protection: If you are an individual considering purchase of a franchise, you should have your documents reviewed by an experienced franchise attorney before you sign. Franchise agreements are among the most one-sided business agreements in existence, and franchisors resist making changes. But changes can sometimes be negotiated, and at other times the best decision a buyer might make is to walk away. Buying a franchise can be a big investment and can involve signing a long term contract with no early exit permitted. Don’t be penny-wise and pound foolish. Don’t buy a franchise without knowing what you are getting into. Don’t assume you can just read the agreement yourself and save a few dollars! These are very complex agreements and only an experienced franchised attorney should be asked to review one.
  • Franchise Disputes: Sometimes franchise purchases go bad. When they do, the franchisor typically has the upper hand, since the agreement is written to favor the franchisor. If you’re involved in a dispute that could involve a court case or an arbitration, you need to involve an expert in Ohio Franchise Law. Your franchisor will be represented by an experienced litigator from a big law firm who specializes in franchise law. Only a known franchise law expert will be able to give your side credibility.
