Georgia Franchise Lawyer

We know that when someone starts and runs a franchise, they shed blood, sweat, and tears for their business. Taking the leap and starting a franchise is not for everyone, and if you had the guts to do it, you should ensure you hire competent legal representation who can focus on the legal side of things while you focus on what you do best–helping your franchise prosper. We solely represent franchisees, meaning we’re always on the side of the “little guy”–we don’t believe in representing large corporations looking to get what they can from their hard-working franchisees. The bottom line is that if you’re a franchisee, we’re here to help. Contact a Georgia franchise lawyer from FortmanSpann, LLC today to schedule your initial consultation with our dedicated legal team.

Starting a Franchise in Georgia

If you’re looking to start a franchise in Georgia, the first thing you should understand is that Georgia has not enacted any franchise-specific laws, and that, unlike in many states, there is no state-specific FDD registration or filing requirements in Georgia. Because of this, as long as your principal trademarks are registered with the USPTO, you most likely won’t have to adhere to Georgia’s business opportunity laws, and, as such, you won’t have to register or file before starting your franchise.
