Congratulations! You have leaped into the world of franchising and buying an existing franchise. Here is how a franchise attorney can help you to prepare all the documents and solve legal issues.

Do You Need a Franchise Lawyer to Buy a Franchise?

A franchise lawyer will help you every step of the way in deciding whether or not to buy a franchise. The first order of business is to help you read the fine print of the FDD (franchise disclosure document), and your franchise lawyer will help you understand all the language it contains.

What is Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

FDD is a 23-item document that outlines the franchise’s tiny little details. Of particular importance is Item 19, which may include financial performance representations that can help you determine whether or not the franchise is likely to make you a lot of money. The FDD also contains the Franchise Agreement. These legal documents are extremely important to the relationship between the franchisee and franchisor, so understanding them entirely is imperative.
