The Difference Between Franchise Consulting Companies & Franchise Attorneys

Frequently, those looking to become franchisees will hire franchise consulting companies instead of franchise attorneys. In some cases, there’s nothing wrong with choosing a franchise consulting company, however, this isn’t always true, which is why we think it’s so important that you understand the difference between franchise consulting companies and franchise attorneys.

To start, and perhaps most importantly, franchise consulting companies–in many ways, like franchisors themselves–are primarily concerned with their profits, and not yours. For example, franchise consulting companies typically make their profits by selling franchises to franchisees, which means there’s a strong chance your franchise consulting company will simply try to sell you a franchise without explaining any of the potential downsides of purchasing the franchise. If this sounds somewhat sneaky, it’s because it is. As long as you purchase the franchise, the consulting company makes money and you are no longer their problem.

That said, when you hire a franchise law attorney, their primary concern is ensuring you make smart and profitable business decisions. If we believe a franchise isn’t worth the purchase or comes with certain risks or complications, it’s our prerogative to inform you of these risks. Our top priority is ensuring your success, while a franchise consulting company’s top priority is selling you a franchise. This is a stark comparison, which is why you should strongly consider who you hire to represent you before pulling the trigger. FortmanSpann, LLC is prepared to be your legal advocate through each step of the process.
