Services Our Franchise Lawyer Provides Clients in New Jersey
Our franchise lawyers help clients across the state of New Jersey with a wide range of franchise-related issues, including:
- Franchise Acquisition: Becoming a franchisee is exciting. You’re starting your own business, and you’re getting ready to make your way. However, you’ll first have to negotiate the terms of your contract with your franchisor, and you can’t do so without an experienced New Jersey franchise lawyer at your side. Our firm can help you attain a favorable agreement that truly sets you up for success.
- Franchisee Litigation: Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for franchisors to turn on their franchisees. Though you’d think a franchisee’s success is synonymous with a franchisor’s success, this isn’t always the case, and franchisors will sometimes act not in the best interests of their franchisees, but in their own best interests. We help franchisees litigate with their franchisors when faced with a wide array of issues, including encroachment, breach of contract, fraud, FDD disclosure violations, and more. Regardless of the issue you’re facing with your franchisor, we are on your side, and we are here to fight for you, every step of the way.
- Franchisee Associations: Franchisee associations are a fantastic means for franchisees to gather together and make their demands heard. Whether you’re looking to start a franchisee association or you need a competent legal team who can bring the concerns of your franchisee association to the attention of your franchisor, you’re in the right place. FortmanSpann, LLC has significant experience handling all matters pertaining to franchisee associations, and we are prepared to put that experience to work for you as well.
Starting a Franchise in New Jersey
Fortunately, New Jersey does not require those looking to offer or sell franchises to register their Franchise Disclosure Documents with a state regulator. It also means that there is no state registration fee. Additionally, under the New Jersey Franchise Practices Act, franchisees are afforded several rights, and franchisors have various responsibilities to their franchisees. For example, franchisors may not require franchisees to sign general releases as conditions for entering into a franchise agreement.
