Los Angeles Franchise Lawyer
Owning a franchise can be a rewarding experience, but franchisees can also face difficult challenges and substantial losses when things do not go as planned. Unfortunately, in many cases, the issues that prevent franchisees from succeeding are directly linked to their franchisors, with franchisors often going to great lengths to mitigate their risk and maximize their profits at their franchisees’ expense.
At the Goldstein Law Group, we have seen this scenario play out time and time again. With more than 30 years of experience exclusively representing franchisees and dealers, we understand the legal and practical hurdles franchisees face on a daily basis. We also understand what it means for a franchisee to face losing his or her investment due to a franchisor’s misdeeds, and this is why we are dedicated to helping both new and existing franchisees protect their legal rights.
