Creative And Strategic Legal Guidance

Ensuring Compliance With Franchise Registration And Disclosure Requirements

As a franchisor, you must provide a Franchise Disclosure Document to your prospective franchisees in all 50 states. In some states, a franchise must be registered before a franchisor begins selling franchises in the state. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), franchise registration states and the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) have implemented complex legal rules that apply to the offer and sale of franchises.

Whether you are establishing a new franchise program or are an established franchise company, the franchise attorneys at Huck Bouma work with you to obtain and keep your franchise registrations and Franchise Disclosure Document in compliance with federal and state franchise laws. The Huck Bouma franchise attorneys have extensive experience in registering franchises in all the franchise registration states. Put the years of experience and legal skills of the attorneys of the Huck Bouma Franchise Law Practice Group to work for you.
