Meet the FTC Franchise Rule and Other Franchise Guidelines
Understanding franchise disclosure documents and their requirements for franchisors is an important step in the process of franchising a business. The required contents of a franchise disclosure document are set forth by the FTC Franchise Rule, as well as the 2008 NASAA Franchise Guidelines. Our franchise law attorneys can review the contents of franchise disclosure documents to ensure they meet all state and FTC franchise laws.

Instead, our lawyers tailor these documents to the unique needs of our clients so that prospective franchisees can determine whether your system is right for them.
