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 in the FTC Franchise Rule, as well as the 2008 NASAA Franchise Guidelines.

Since every franchise is unique, a franchise disclosure document should reflect the distinct features of that franchise. Our firm does not simply fill in the blanks of template documents for clients, while charging clients for that type of “service.” Instead, our lawyers tailor these documents to the unique needs and attributes of our clients so that prospective franchisees can determine whether your system is right for them.

At Kaufmann Gildin & Robbins, we have experience working with both start-up and mature franchisors across the United States and throughout the world. We have developed franchise disclosure documents for franchisors of varying sizes, including some of the largest franchisors in the world. We have the experience and skill to draft franchise documents and consider the legal effects of these documents.

When disputes arise, our attorneys are also experienced litigators who know what it takes to protect client rights.
