Navigating Complex Regulations
Franchisors (the company that sells the franchises) are highly regulated by both state and federal law. They have many obligations to potential franchisees, including the necessity to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Disclosure Requirements and Prohibitions Concerning Franchising and Business Opportunities (the Franchise Rule), including its 2007 amendment (16 C.F.R. §§ 436.1- 436.11).
If a franchisor fails to comply with the law, it can be considered an unfair or deceptive act or practice in violation of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act).

“I found Kate through a friend who had used her in the past. As the alleged "victim" of a criminal case, she took my requests very seriously and helped ensure I got the outcome I wanted vs. what the state wanted to happen. She understood my concerns and protected me in the court from being asked any questions. She had everything dismissed and resolved in less than a week. I am extremely happy with the outcome and will always recommend her to people.”
