FDD and Franchise Agreement Review & Analysis
Are you considering the purchase of a franchise? Have you paid a deposit? Before you get too far into the process, you need to consult a number of professionals: business and financial advisors, accountants, and a franchise attorney.
At Nobles & Sigman, we know that the franchise industry offers an exciting opportunity for you to be your own boss and pursue your dreams. But it is also a complex and highly regulated business arrangement. Our franchise attorneys will guide you through the Federal Trade Commission regulations and local state laws. We will ensure that you have the proper legal foundation and a complete understanding of the franchise and the agreement. We want you to be a success.
Our attorneys encourage your ambition, but we temper your enthusiasm with caution and protect you with knowledge, experience and thorough preparation. We review the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and the franchise agreement, and provide you with a comprehensive analysis of the brand, concept, financial stability and viability of the franchise. Our most important responsibility is to review and negotiate the terms of the franchise agreement and draft any additional documentation you need.
Attorney Sigman has represented clients from Boston and Greater New England to California and beyond, reviewing franchise agreements and FDD’s for a diverse portfolio of clients. Nobles & Sigman is ready help you navigate through the intense franchise start up process. This process often includes the creation of a business entity and the review and negotiation of a commercial lease and financing documents.
Our industry experience ranges from healthcare, business to business services, retail, and fitness to automotive, as well as home-based and brick and mortar franchises. For example, we have reviewed: Subway, Cold Stone Creamery, Great Clips, MAACO, Mr. Handyman, Cartridge World, and SpeedPro. For more examples, please visit our Franchise Review page.
