When Should You Talk to an Allentown Franchisee Attorney?
1. You are Thinking About Buying a Franchise
If you are thinking about buying a franchise in Allentown, you will want to consult with a franchisee attorney to ensure that you are making as informed of a decision as possible. We offer four tiers of fixed-fee Franchise Business Review Programs for prospective franchisees.
2. Your Franchise is Up for Renewal
If your franchise is up for renewal, you will need to ensure that you meet all of your franchise agreement’s renewal conditions. These conditions will likely include signing the latest version of the franchisor’s franchise agreement, which may have terms that are materially different from those in your current contract.
3. You are Thinking About Selling Your Franchise
Similar to renewing a franchise, selling (or “transferring”) a franchise is also subject to various conditions. If you are thinking about selling, you will need to work with an Allentown franchise lawyer to ensure that you do everything required.
4. You are Facing a Dispute with Your Franchisor
Franchise disputes can involve a wide range of issues, and achieving a favorable and efficient result requires experienced legal representation. To protect your investment to the fullest extent possible, you should consult with an attorney right away.
5. You are Facing Termination of Your Franchise
Unfortunately, wrongful terminations are extremely common in franchising. If you believe that your franchisor may be planning to terminate your franchise—or if your franchise has already been terminated—you should talk to a Pennsylvania lawyer as soon as possible to determine what options you have available.
