Franchise Law, Litigation and Legal Representation

Cherry Hill, New Jersey Attorney Providing Franchisee Protection and Legal Representation

If you are thinking about establishing or buying into an existing franchise. Donnelly Ritigstein, LLC recommends you consult with an experienced franchise law lawyer.

It is important to seek out counsel before establishing a franchise - someone who can review the relevant disclosure, franchise agreements and lease documents to determine if it is in your best interest to go forward. This is because once the contract is signed, it is far more difficult to alter the terms and conditions of the franchise agreement.

To schedule a free initial consultation with a skilled franchise law lawyer in New Jersey or Washington call Donnelly Ritigstein, LLC, at 866.907.6368.

The Complexities of Establishing a Franchise

  • Past history of the company and its principals, including recent litigation and bankruptcies
  • Estimated startup costs
  • Obligations and restrictions of the franchisee agreement
  • Financial statements, including contact information for fellow franchisees

Additionally, franchisees in New Jersey are granted extra protection under the New Jersey Franchise Practices Act.
