Los Angeles Dealership Law

Dealerships occupy a special niche within the world of franchising. While dealerships exemplify many of the hallmarks of the traditional franchise model, dealers who sign franchise agreements with manufacturers face a number of unique challenges as well, and understanding dealers’ and manufacturers’ obligations requires a thorough understanding of the state and federal laws that apply.

Attorney Jeffrey M. Goldstein has been representing automobile and heavy equipment dealers for more than 30 years. He has litigated in state and federal courts across the country, represented numerous clients in mediation and arbitration, and reviewed and negotiated countless franchise and dealership agreements. If you are considering a dealership franchise in Los Angeles, or if you are facing a dispute with your franchisor, Mr. Goldstein can help you make informed decisions and protect your investment.

Franchise Lawyer for Dealers in Los Angeles, CA

When purchasing an automobile or heavy equipment dealership franchise, your leverage for negotiating the terms of your franchise agreement will usually be limited. That said, with the right approach – and the right representation – prospective dealers can often find at least some success in negotiating for more-favorable terms. Prospective dealers must also be sure that they have a clear understanding of their obligations and their limited rights under their franchise agreements, and they must understand the risks that buying a dealership entails.

These risks come into focus when dealers face the prospect of entering into disputes with their franchisors. From unfavorable supplier provisions to franchisors’ broad rights of termination, when dealers struggle to find success, they often also find that their franchisors are willing to offer very little in the way of help. As a result, dealer-manufacturer disputes are common, and dealers are often left with little choice but to pursue legal remedies in franchise arbitration or litigation.
