Atlanta Franchise Attorney
Do you own a franchise? Are you thinking about buying a franchise? If so, it is important to be aware of the risks involved. The franchise relationship is uniquely one-sided, and franchisees who fail to protect themselves through franchise agreement negotiations and franchise litigation can face substantial losses despite their best efforts to run a successful business.
Atlanta franchise attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein represents active and prospective franchisees in Georgia and nationwide. With more than 30 years of franchise law experience, Mr. Goldstein is one of a limited number of attorneys who devote their practice to franchisee representation, and he has a national reputation as an effective negotiator and litigator in franchise-related matters. Your franchisor has a lawyer, if not several, and its Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and franchise agreement are designed to provide as much protection as possible. If you want to have any hope of levelling the playing field, you need an advocate with Mr. Goldstein’s experience and reputation on your side.
Nationally-Recognized Franchise Lawyer for Franchise Agreement Negotiations
Before buying a franchise in Atlanta, it is critical to hire an attorney to review the franchisor’s FDD and franchise agreement. These are complex and highly-specialized documents, and your rights and obligations as a franchisee are not as straightforward as they may initially seem. Oftentimes, it will be necessary for prospective franchisees to negotiate certain provisions of their franchise agreements as well, as franchisors often take advantage of the fact that most franchisees will sign on a “take-it-ot-leave-it” basis.
We offer three levels of flat-fee franchise review services:
- Fundamental Review of the Franchise Agreement and FDD
- Detailed Review of the Franchise Agreement and FDD
- Detailed Comprehensive Review of the FDD and Negotiation of the Franchise Agreement
Mr. Goldstein also has significant experience in franchisee group and association matters.
A “Top Franchise Litigator for Franchisees and Dealers”
Attorney Jeff Goldstein has significant experience representing franchisees in Atlanta and other cities in litigation involving antitrust, breach of contract, fraud and other disputes with their franchisors and suppliers.

- Franchise agreement disputes (including royalty, franchisor breach and post-termination litigation)
- Franchise encroachment disputes

- Unfair and deceptive trade practice litigation
