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 Firm, PLLC, in Farmersville, Texas. At our firm, we use in-depth knowledge of the law, forceful action and personalized service to achieve the best possible results for our clients.
While we are located just outside of Dallas, in Farmersville, Texas, we effectively represent clients throughout the United States. We use the latest technology to share documents and keep in close communication so that matters can often be handled without requiring our clients to visit our law offices. Our goal is to make matters convenient for you no matter where you are or what legal challenges you face.
Let A Recent Case Be A Warning To Business Owners
We recently represented a Philadelphia client who opened a second location of an existing business. The agreement that our client signed gave him permission to use the business name and identity, outlining certain rules to follow. The agreement also stated that it was not a franchise agreement — even though it very much looked like one. Basically, our 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, our client was not responsible for losses incurred when the business encountered trouble.
