Auto Dealer Law

Our Attorneys Represent Auto Dealerships and Their Owners

Whether you are starting, purchasing, relocating, selling, or operating an Oregon or Washington automotive dealership, we have the expertise to guide you through the legal issues you will face. We assist our dealer clients with customer concerns, DOJ complaints, advertising laws, and manufacturer issues.

You are likely familiar with the myriad of compliance issues faced by dealers – the FTC Red Flags Rule, the Truth in Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Privacy Act, the Unlawful Trade Practices Act, and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (among others). We help our car dealership clients understand and comply with motor vehicle laws in an efficient, effective manner.

Business and Motor Vehicle Law for Dealerships

We also prepare and negotiate purchase and sale agreements, commercial leases, franchising documents, and financing documents for working capital loans, wholesale flooring loans, and property loans, with motor vehicle dealers specifically in mind.
