Franchise Law Attorneys

Under Florida law, a franchise is an agreement between two or more persons that establishes a business relationship giving the franchisee rights to do business using the franchisor’s scope and plans. The franchisee’s business constitutes a realm of the franchisor’s distribution system, and the franchisee relies on the franchisor for the basic supply of goods. It is against Florida law when marketing a franchise to make any false or misrepresenting statements about the chances for success, the required total financial investment, or the franchisor’s efforts to establish other franchises in the same territory. If you or someone you know has had a breach of contract with respect to a franchise agreement than call the BCN Franchise Law Attorneys  and discuss your options.

Franchise Law is the area of law revolving around the right or license that is granted to an individual or group to market a company’s goods or services in a particular territory under the company’s trademark, trade name, or service mark.

Franchising in the United States is governed by federal law administered by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and by a variety of state statutes. Franchise laws differ greatly from state to state. The state of Florida regulates franchising through “business opportunity” acts.

Why use Franchise Law Attorneys?

A franchise is a retail outlet owned by independent third party operators through which a company distributes its products or services. The independent operator does business using the marketing methods, trademarked goods and services and the “goodwill” and name recognition developed by the company. In exchange, the independent operator pays an initial fee and royalties to the owner of the franchise. Our  Franchise Law Attorneys can help you understand the intricacies of the guidelines so call for your free consult.

The company that grants the independent operator the right to distribute its trademarks, products, or techniques are known as the franchiser. The independent, third party business person distributing the franchiser’s products or services through retail or service outlets is called the franchisee.
