How we can help with Franchise Agreements

Before taking the leap to become a franchisee, it is important to have a grounded understanding of your business and the potential risks.

We can assist you with understanding the franchise process, undertaking the necessary legal due diligence over the franchise and the model for growth. 

We are familiar with the requirements of franchisors and understand that the franchisor may be unwilling to change any of the terms of their standard contracts. We can review and seek to negotiate the franchise agreement on your behalf or, if negotiations are not permitted, ensure that you understand what you are getting into before signing the franchise agreement. 

For franchisors or prospective franchisors, we can advise you on how to structure your franchise model and what legal documentation is required to be put in place.
