Skilled Legal Assistance When Franchise Disputes Arise
It is easy to underestimate the impact that a franchise dispute can have on your business. While you try to account for every contingency, doing so can be impossible without legal help. Many franchisers and franchisees are blindsided by disputes they did not see coming.
The best way to protect yourself in a dispute is to seek legal counsel from a franchise lawyer at the Rybicki Law, in Caddo Mills, Texas. Attorney Rybicki uses in-depth knowledge of the law, assertive action and personalized service to achieve the best possible results for clients in Texas as well as across the United States. Technology to securely share documents and keep in close communication allows for the convenience and flexibility for clients to have their legal matters addressed from wherever they are in the nation.
Let A Recent Case Be A Warning To Business Owners
Attorney Rybicki recently represented a Philadelphia client who opened a second location of an existing business. The agreement that the client signed gave him permission to use the business name and identity, outlining certain rules to follow. The agreement explicitly stated that it was not a franchise agreement – even though it very much looked like one. The client was held to the standards of a franchise but was not provided with the disclosures necessary to franchisees.
In arbitration, it was found that the agreement was a franchise agreement after all – despite the language to the contrary. The necessary franchise disclosures should have been provided to our client. Because they were not, the client was not responsible for losses incurred when the business encountered trouble.
