Buying or selling a franchise is a complex area of the law. We can negotiate and draft agreements to suit your needs.
If you are buying a franchise, you may have researched the product but this is only the beginning. What assistance is the franchisor prepared to offer? What do you receive for your money? Are you able to sell the business? What are you committed to supply?
If you are developing a franchise operation, have you considered exclusive territories and sales targets? How do you maintain standards? How much information can you require the franchisee to supply? Should the franchise be for a fixed term? How detailed should the operations manual be?
We can guide you through the maze of issues that arise with franchise agreements. If you wish to franchise your business, we have experience in this field also.
Please contact Roger Hayman, John Evans or Wendy Lindsay if you want to discuss franchising in more detail.
