A Franchise Attorney Who Knows How to Navigate the Legal Waters!
As everyone knows, especially in this economy, it is hard enough to build that successful business before ever reaching into the world of franchising in order to expand and make it even more successful.
Franchisors have questions, such as: How do I turn my successful business into a franchise? How do I attract better franchisees? How can I change the way franchisees do things?
And on the other side of the fence, so to speak, you have franchisees struggling to understand what they’re putting their hard-earned money into that will, hopefully, be a success for them. Questions that come from franchisees include things like: What is my total estimated cost to open? Does this amount include working capital? Do you provide any guidance, in writing, about what I can potentially earn? What is my territory and how is it protected?
On either side of this issue, help and guidance is most definitely needed from someone who is not just the ‘corporate stick figure’ who has the ability to answer your questions in a non-caring, non-supportive way, like an encyclopedia. What a franchisor needs to understand and a franchisee will need to learn, is that having a franchise attorney that absolutely understands the law inside and out, but ALSO has the passionate interest in helping franchises find their niche and grow into hugely successful businesses, is the one you want to have on your side!
Franchiselawhelp.com is a website that offers a doorway into the world of franchise law. It also introduces businesspeople to a lawyer that has truly dedicated his life to the franchise industry. While legal guidance and advice is given in other areas, franchise law is his main focus.
What many do not understand is that both Franchise and Business Opportunity Law have many subtle twists and turns that are more than a little overwhelming to non-lawyers. It is a fact that many business people with a good head on their shoulders have spent a great deal of time and effort reading, creating, and constructing their franchise documents in an effort to avoid their business offerings being governed by “franchise statutes.” What many fail to understand, however, is that these particular franchise laws are designed to protect the average person that may be interested in going into business for themselves. Franchise laws are written in a way that makes it difficult for companies and individuals to side-step them, and companies must find a knowledgeable source to help them through the rough patches of opening the franchise, running the franchise, and dealing with a slew of documents that, if done incorrectly, can sometimes make their ‘business opportunity’ non-compliant.
Instead of finding yourself in a well of trouble, it is absolutely necessary to rely on the years of experience that Mike Rosenthal brings to the table. Through Mike’s own words, this is a franchise attorney who has placed his focus on the world of franchise law because he, “likes helping people create a firm and sensible foundation for their franchise system by creating fair, rational standards and systems based on clear, understandable franchise agreements.” This is a man whose head is most assuredly on his shoulders, and his focus is squarely set on a company’s success.
“I believe that I can help people avoid the many mistakes that start-up franchisors often make, including being too eager to take on the first franchisees who will sign a contract and have the franchise fee placed into their hands.” Again, eagerness is a ‘negative’ in this type of world, especially seeing as that the first few franchisees are critical to the success of the system, but merely passing the “mirror test” is not sufficient to prove that those particular franchisees can be successful.
Far more is needed in order to make your franchise soar, and with the network of business professionals that Mike already works with an entire team is at your service; a team that can help navigate the legal waters.
This economy is difficult; the laws are more than a bit ‘broad’ in the franchise industry; and YOU need the mind and heart of a franchise attorney that will help lead you down the right path to success! There are enough issues when it comes to opening a franchise, so don’t let the intricacies of contracts and documents take your focus away from building the business you want. Meet Mike today!
