In this article, our DuPage franchise attorneys provide an in-depth summary of all aspects of federal and Illinois franchise law.
First, we discuss the definition of a "franchise." You may be subject to franchise regulation, even if you do not call yourself a franchise. Next, we discuss exactly what disclosures are required in your franchise disclosure document. Our DuPage franchise lawyers explain exactly how to register your franchise with the Franchise Bureau of the Illinois Attorney General Office. We also provide an in-depth summary of Illinois law governing franchisor/franchisee relations, including the franchisor's early termination of the franchise, the franchisor's non-renewal of the franchise, and discrimination between franchisees. Finally, we discuss some common issues that have appeared in cases of law between franchisors and franchisees, such as encroachment by the franchisor, the franchisor's unilateral change of franchise systems, and the franchisee's failure to meet brand standards.
