With the increasing trend in franchising we have helped countless clients, whether franchisees or franchisors, maximise their relationship with the parties they are working with, by advising on all aspects of franchising from entering into or creating a franchise through to exiting through sale or terminating contracts.
Franchise Agreements are not like normal contracts so require specific knowledge of franchising to properly advise clients on the issues that may arise.
Our clients operate in a variety of different industries which include fast food, retail, sports, financial advice and property, on either a national or regional basis.
Services we offer include:
- Reviewing Franchise Agreements
- Advising on exit strategies
- Dealing with franchise disputes arising from Franchise Agreements
- Intellectual Property advice specific to Franchise Agreements
- Acquiring or selling your franchise business, including handling the property transfers and transfers of employment.
Our team has specific expertise in selling or purchasing a franchise business from other franchisees. Our recent work has included completing on the largest collection of outlets for an international fast food brand. For more information on franchises and how we can help you, please contact our Company Commercial Team on 01279 755777 or get in touch with James Brunton, Partner in our Company Commercial department.
Franchising can be a profitable and successful option if you are considering it as an investment. With the right legal advice from the outset, we can assist you with your business goals.
