Franchise Lawyer Serving Clients in Maryland| On Your Side

Unfortunately, franchisees are taken advantage of by their franchisors more frequently than you’d expect. This is why if you’re a franchisee, you need a legal team who knows how to fight back. Additionally, if you’re a future or budding franchisee, it’s also best to have a legal team that can look out for your best interests and ensures you’re doing the right thing. FortmanSpann, LLC has helped individuals like you for decades, and they’re here for you as well.

The Services We Provide to Franchisees

FortmanSpann, LLC is a law firm dedicated to serving franchisees. If you’re a franchisee who’s either having issues with your franchisor or need representation for any other franchise-related matter, we are here to help. Just some of the aspects of franchise law we handle are as follows:

  • Franchise Acquisition: You’re starting a business. There are many things to consider and much paperwork to deal with. You’re a businessperson and are prepared to build your legacy. That said, we’re lawyers, and we’re here to handle the legal side of things while you focus on what matters most: making your business succeed.
  • Franchisee Litigation: You may assume that, as a franchisee, if your business does well, the franchise as a whole will also benefit. Of course, this is true, but, if franchise ownership thinks they can make more money by taking action that may harm the profitability of your franchise, such as opening another franchise across the street, they may very well do so. In this case, we can help you deal with franchise ownership and fight for a favorable outcome on your behalf.
  • Franchisee Associations: If you’re a franchisee, you’re most likely one of many. Fortunately, you can benefit from hiring a Maryland franchise attorney who can help you create or work with a franchisee association. Franchisee associations are great means to allow franchisees to have their voices heard by banding together and voicing their concerns.
