The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces federal consumer protection laws that prevent fraud, deception, and unfair business practices. The regulation of franchises falls within the FTC’s mission and they have prepared an excellent resource for consumers that can be found on the FTC A Consumer’s Guide to Buying a Franchise.

If you are so bold as to read the actual Federal Rule and Regulation, you can grab some coffee and do so by downloading the Federal Register 16 CFR Parts 436 and 437

Our goal as your franchise lawyer is to keep you compliant with the changing legal landscape both federally and with Franchise Laws in Different States.
