The Franchise Owner's most trusted news source
Litigator for franchise owners, attorney Harold Brown was the pioneer in his discussion of how franchising needed to be regulated. His 1969 book Franchising, Trap for the Trusting was the first to assert breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing for franchisees. It is the grandaddy of books that discusses what an appropriate and balanced regulatory environment should look like to have both franchisors and franchisee align and thrive.
Although written 44 years ago, the problems of franchising in 1969 sound the same as the beginning of the 21st Century.
The book is now out of print.
