FTC Franchise Rule Enforcement

12/06/2007

When a client of ours was caught in an FTC project sting, the client sought our assistance in defending the enforcement action. We worked with the FTC to design a questionnaire to be sent to putative franchisees, showing that the purchasers of the business opportunity were overwhelmingly satisfied with their acquisition. Our work ultimately lead to the rejection by the Federal Court of the sanctions the FTC sought against our client for its alleged violations."
