Seeger Weiss is investigating claims for a potential class action involving fraud perpetuated by franchisors against franchisees.
Franchisors offer potential business owners the opportunity to associate a new business with an established organization. Sometimes, however, the franchisor is not dependable. For example, there are claims that fast-growing franchisors overstate the amount of support they can offer franchisees.
Other times the franchisor is not trustworthy. Seeger Weiss is investigating allegations of franchisors that misrepresented the amount of earnings franchisees could expect to earn, understated the costs of owning a franchise, forced franchisees to purchase goods from specific vendors at inflated prices, mandated that franchisees pay into costly advertising funds, downplayed the amount of royalties that the franchisee was required to pay to the franchisor, or otherwise misrepresented the agreement between franchisor and franchisee.
