There are numerous legal considerations involved in buying a franchise, and there is an equal number of questions that need to be answered when facing a franchise dispute. As a result, regardless of the current status of your franchise venture, you need to rely on the advice of an experienced Allentown franchisee attorney. Mr. Goldstein represents individuals and groups throughout the franchise lifecycle, including issues related to:

  • Franchise Due Diligence
  • Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and Franchise Agreement Review
  • Franchise Agreement Negotiation
  • Franchise Renewals
  • Franchise Transfers
  • Franchisor-Franchisee Disputes and Litigation
  • Franchise Terminations and Post-Termination Matters
  • Franchisee Group and Association Matters

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.
