Assisting Franchise Clients in Regulatory Compliance
Attorneys at Einbinder & Dunn assist start-up and established franchisors nationwide in complying with federal and state franchise disclosure and registration requirements. The Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) franchise rule, as amended in 2007, requires franchisors to prepare and provide to a prospective franchisee (and in certain states to register) a franchise disclosure document (FDD) within a specified period of time before completing the sale of a franchise to that prospective franchisee.
The firm prepares FDDs required by the FTC including related agreements to ensure that franchisor clients have complied with all applicable state and federal regulations, including various disclosure timing requirements. The firm also represents franchisors in complying with registration requirements in the 13 states (California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin) where such registrations are required before the FDD and can be disseminated to potential franchisees and used to sell a franchise in that state. In addition, there are several other states that require franchisors to file documents with that state or provide that state with notice before selling a franchise there. The firm will also assist in such filings.
For established franchisors, the firm will assist clients with ongoing registration requirements and filing of annual reports.
