Attorney Jonathan Fortman has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of 3 franchisees against the Stratus Building Solutions janitorial franchisor.
According to a message left on UnhappyFranchisee.com earlier today, the 3 Stratus franchise owners (all based in Missouri) claim they were enticed into signing the Stratus franchise agreement through the use of false and misleading information.
They claim that once they signed up as Stratus franchise owners, the franchisor failed to provide the services promised in the franchise agreement.
The franchisees’ suit also alleges that Stratus Building Solutions violated Missouri law by improper termination of franchisees.
Jonathan Fortman invites Stratus Building Franchisees who want to discuss their experiences with this franchise to contact him directly.

My name is Jonathan Fortman and I’m an attorney in the St. Louis area, the hometown of Stratus.. On August 13, 2011, I filed a class action lawsuit in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis on behalf of 3 plaintiffs who purchased Stratus franchises. The franchisees allege that Stratus gave them false and misleading information to get the to sign the franchise agreement, failed to provide services it agreed to provide in the franchise agreement and violated Missouri law by terminating franchises without proper notice. We are seeking to have the case certified as a class action on behalf of all Missouri franchisees who had losses due to the improper conduct of corporate. I would be happy to discuss any of your experiences you had with this franchise. Feel free to contact me anytime at (314) 522-2312 or by email at jef@fortmanlaw.,com. . If you are already represented by an attorney, please pass this message to your attorney. I wish you all the best of luck in this matter. Just remember you are not alone.
