New York Franchise Lawyer

Founded by national franchise lawyer Jeffrey M. Goldstein, the Goldstein Law Firm is the “go-to” team for hardball franchise litigation. With more than 30 years of franchise law experience, Mr. Goldstein has handled cases against virtually all major franchise systems, and he has a proven track record of success in state and federal litigation as well as mandatory franchise arbitration. Mr. Goldstein routinely represents prospective franchisees in franchise agreement negotiations and due diligence as well, and often obtains concessions for unfair provisions that many other lawyers presume are “non-negotiable.”

30 Years of Legal Experience for New York Franchisees

We represent prospective and existing franchisees in all franchise-related matters. With our extensive litigation experience, we are able to quickly assess issues that have the potential to lead to costly disputes; and, when disputes arise, we put our clients on equal footing with their franchisors. Our litigation experience benefits prospective franchisees as well, as we are able to identify contract provisions that have a tendency to lead to disputes and negotiate alternative language that mitigates our clients’ risk of litigation.

Our practice areas include:

  • Antitrust Disputes
  • Franchise Association and Group Representation
  • Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and Franchise Agreement Review
  • Initial and Renewal Franchise Agreement Negotiation
  • Franchise Agreement Litigation
  • Franchise Encroachment
  • Franchise Terminations
  • Mediation and Arbitration
  • Unfair Franchise Practices

Areas We Serve

As a national franchise law firm, we represent clients throughout New York and across the country. We also have experience representing international franchisees in U.S.-based franchise litigation. Our firm is one of only a small number of franchise law firms in the country that exclusively represents franchisees and dealers in cities including:

  • Albany
  • Binghamton
  • Buffalo
  • Ithaca
  • Jamestown
  • Middletown
  • Mount Vernon
  • New Rochelle
  • New York City
  • Niagara Falls
  • Rochester
  • Syracuse
  • Utica
  • White Plains
  • Yonkers

Franchise agreements provide extraordinary protections for franchisors, and they give very few legal rights to franchisees. In fact, they often include provisions that require franchisees to assert claims in a timeframe that is far shorter than the applicable statute of limitations. As a result, if you are facing any potential legal issue in relation to a franchise, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. If you would like a free consultation, contact the Goldstein Law Firm today.
