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).
