Our attorneys provide a full range of legal services for automobile dealerships in Georgia, including the country's largest insurer of dealerships. We work proactively with our clients to ensure that their business practices comply with federal and state laws and regulations so that they can avoid lawsuits and regulatory sanctions. We advise our clients on employment issues, advertising methods, the content of their purchase and sale documents and steps they must take to enforce their mechanic's lien rights and right to repossess vehicles. We have a close relationship with the Georgia Automobile Dealership Association and have published articles on various topics of interest to automobile dealerships in the industry's newsletters and magazines. FMG is also a member of the National Association of Dealer Counsel ("NADC"), which is a nationwide professional organization of attorneys who represent automobile and other vehicle/vessel dealers.
When litigation is unavoidable, our attorneys stand ready to aggressively defend (and prosecute) lawsuits. We have successfully represented our clients in claims involving personnel disputes, financing disputes, fraud, consumer protection issues, federal and state regulatory matters, "buyer’s remorse" and repossessed vehicles, among others. We have also successfully represented our clients before regulatory agencies, such as the Georgia Governor's Office of Consumer Protection.
