Fraud & Misrepresentation in California

Protecting Franchisees from Unfair Practices

Legally defined, fraud is an act of professional misconduct that utilizes some sort of unfair or unlawful practice in order to secure a financial gain from another person. Fraud is an act of deceit, and perpetrators must be held accountable. Unfortunately, franchisees and franchisors can become entangled in legal disputes involving misrepresentation and fraud.

We understand that it can feel upsetting or even hopeless when your rights have been violated, you have been taken advantage of, or your interests have been jeopardized. Our Los Angeles franchise lawyer can represent you as you seek justice and compensation for the wrongs that have been committed against you and your business.

At Franchise Legal Support, we have dedicated more than 28 years of practice to helping franchisees with various types of legal action, including pursuing compensation for damages such as expenses incurred when addressing unfair practices.

Always Look at the Fine Print

Even in the world of franchises, it is not uncommon for franchisors and franchisees to mislead one another. We have represented and mediated many cases for franchisees who have been misled or fraudulently victimized. We can help guide you through the process of reviewing a franchise agreement and help you understand your rights and duties before signing.

Examples of franchise fraud can include the following:

  • Modifications in a franchise agreement without first seeking approval
  • Breach of contract
  • Misrepresentation of profits or royalties
  • Excessive fees and costs
  • Unlawful termination of a franchise agreement

Franchisors typically have the upper hand in many fraud cases. Although they may have more access to resources and funds, we reassure you that franchisees have the right to take legal action as well. Franchise Legal Support has been dedicated to representing franchisees and small business owners who are making an honest living and realizing their entrepreneurial dreams.
