A franchise is a unique type of business structure which can often lead to issues which require specialist legal advice. Buying into a franchise means you are entering into a range of legal obligations that can have significant financial consequences.

Our services include, but not limited to:

  • Reviewing the franchise agreement and disclosure documents
  • Carrying out due diligence on the franchise network
  • Inspecting whether the franchise owner (Franchisor) has complied with the Franchising Code of Conduct
  • Advice on setting up, advertising and the day-to-day running of the franchise
  • Advice on any restrictions on assignment or transfer if you wish to sell your franchised business during the term of the agreement
  • Acting for you in the renewal of the existing franchise agreement
