Not only do our lawyers at Denton Peterson Dunn draft and complete the FDD, but we also provide professional assistance through the state registration process. States requiring registration include California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
While the actual registration process varies from state to state, most governments require that the FDD is filed and fully approved before a franchisor can begin to actually sell a franchise in that particular state. Our lawyers have helped countless clients register their franchise in various states successfully and smoothly.
Franchisors are required to renew their state registration each year. To make that process simpler, we can alert our franchise clients when their renewal is due each year, and help guide them through that process with ease.
