Caution:There are many law firms
today claiming to have
"franchise attorneys" or franchise departments. Franchising is a very specialized
area of the law. As such, only seasoned franchise attorneys with
excellent track records can really provide you with
accurate, timely and current legal advice
on franchising. BEFORE you retain a
law firm, get a written proposal of expected fees. Also, request a list
of clients with whom you can speak to ascertain the expertise
of the attorney in the specific area of law for which you are seeking
advice. Call several of the firm's clients to compare your level of
of an attorney with the reality of real franchisors' and franchisees'
experiences. Finally, the biggest and/or oldest firms are not the best
fchoice simply by virtue of their firm's size or age.
Franchise Links: Government
Federal Trade Commission
: (FTC) The department of the United States Government that governs the
rules and regulations of franchise and business opportunities based in
the USA. This department also has many other responsibilities and
divisions such as consumer protection/information concerning consumer
investments, solicitations, products, business practices and
complaints. Lately the FTC is involved in the actions/complaints
related to the Internet.
With slight editing liberty taken, this is the FTC's mission quote:
"The Federal Trade Commission enforces a variety of federal antitrust
and consumer protection laws (including franchise and business
opportunity laws). The FTC seeks to ensure that the nation's markets
function competitively, and are vigorous, efficient, and free of undue
restrictions. The FTC also works to enhance the smooth operation of the
marketplace by eliminating acts or practices that are unfair or
deceptive. In general,the FTC's efforts are directed
toward stopping actions that threaten consumers' opportunities to
not confuse the scams/fraud/cases of "biz opps" or "franchise
pretenders" listed on the FTC web site with valid franchise systems.
