Franchises

We have considerable expertise in franchising and can help with the following :

  1. If you have a business which you want to franchise. We can provide advice and draft all the necessary documentation including the standard  Franchise Agreement and the Manual . We can also draft standard property documentation if your franchisees will be operating from premises outside their own homes
  2. If you want to purchase an existing franchise. We can advise on the terms of the Franchise Agreement and suggest wording to be included in a side letter if appropriate . In addition, we can  either draft the agreement between you and the outgoing franchisee or provide advice on the terms if drafted by the solicitor for the franchisor or the outgoing franchisee.
  3. If you intend to take a new franchise from the franchisor.  We provide advice on the terms of the draft Franchise Agreement . We can suggest wording to be included in a side letter.
