Franchise Lawyer Serving Clients in Florida

Florida is home to various franchises, ranging from retail to restaurants, and beyond. If you’re looking to purchase or run a franchise, you should strongly consider hiring a legal team that will always have your best interests at heart. We have extensive experience negotiating with franchisors, taking them to litigation, and ensuring franchisees’ voices are heard. We are a trusted legal resource among franchisees throughout the state of Florida, and we are prepared to do everything in our power to ensure your business meets each of your goals.

Our Legal Services

FortmanSpann, LLC helps franchisees through each phase of the process, from starting their franchise, growing it, and, if need be, negotiating and litigating with deceitful or dishonest franchisors. At FortmanSpann, LLC, our legal team proudly helps franchisees across the state of Florida with the following:

  • Franchise Acquisition: Our legal team has helped countless prospective franchisees become actual franchisees. Remember, purchasing your own slice of a franchise often isn’t straightforward, as, at times, you may be asked to sign documents that, within the fine print, solely benefit the franchisor, and not you, the hard-working franchisee. Our job is to review these documents and ensure you’re entering an agreement that is fair and serves your best interests as well.
  • Franchisee Litigation: If you’re facing any issue that may negatively impact your business’s future, such as encroachment, breach of contract, fraud, or supply chain issues, we can be your number one advocate, every step of the way.
  • Franchisee Associations: One of the best ways for franchisees to ensure their voices are heard is by starting or joining franchisee associations. We can help you start such an association, join one, and advocate for you and your fellow franchisees if need be.

Why FortmanSpann, LLC?

There are several reasons why you should choose FortmanSpann, LLC over other firms. To start, we have decades of experience representing franchisees–over three decades of experience. We also have a successful track record representing our clients in both State and Federal Courts, as well as in mediation and arbitration. Though we’re based in Missouri, we proudly assist franchisees around the country when they’re in need of an attorney who can truly advocate for their best interests and future success. If you’ve been told your case is “unwinnable” by other law firms, give us a call for a second opinion, as we’ve won supposedly “unwinnable” cases on behalf of our clients in the past, and we have the knowledge and skill to do so again.
