Massachusetts Franchise Attorney
Massachusetts is among the majority of states that do not have franchise registration and disclosure laws designed to protect franchisees. However, this does not mean that franchisees in the Commonwealth are without protections. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Franchise Rule applies to franchise offerings in Massachusetts. Various laws that are non-specific to franchising afford legal rights and remedies to Massachusetts franchisees.
When buying a franchise in Massachusetts, it is important to rely on an experienced attorney’s advice. The same goes for facing a dispute with your franchisor. However, when choosing a lawyer, experience on its own is not enough. You need a lawyer who has an in-depth understanding of franchise agreements and franchise disputes and has spent his or her entire career fighting for franchisees’ rights.
