Franchise Legal Guide

Welcome to the Franchise Legal Guide. One of the most important pieces of advice a prospective franchisee can ever get is that before signing any legal documents with a franchisor, find yourself a good franchise attorney.

Legal documents are already complicated enough for any small business owner, but franchising is governed by its own set of laws and regulations. Franchise law differs from other small-business law in many important ways. An experienced franchise lawyer who understands these differences can spare new franchisees from unneeded problems and expense.

There are many excellent franchise attorneys and law practices that specialize in franchise law. In this section you will find fresh, informative articles and guides to help you not only find the franchise legal guidance you need, but also the names of attorneys and law firms that can help you keep ahead of the game in the area of franchise law.
