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.

About Massachusetts Franchise Attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein

Jeffrey M. Goldstein is a franchise attorney who has been exclusively representing franchisees in Massachusetts and throughout the United States for more than 30 years. Unlike most other franchise lawyers, he does not split his practice between franchisor and franchisee representation. With a practice focused exclusively on helping prospective franchisees make smart buying decisions and helping existing franchisees protect their legal rights, Mr. Goldstein has earned a nationwide reputation as an effective and unwavering advocate for franchise buyers and owners.
