Why franchisee’s need a franchisee lawyer

Studies suggest that almost a quarter of all franchisees have had a dispute with their franchisor and many of these disputes result in expensive and time-consuming litigation.

Franchising is a niche area of the law and has a number of complicated regulations which franchisors must abide by when franchising their business. The combined effect of these laws and regulations is that franchise documents can be a legal minefield. Franchisees can suffer significant financial losses by entering into unfair or otherwise unwise franchising agreements. It is very important that franchisees undertake the necessary due diligence and understand the obligations imposed by a franchise agreement before it is signed.

It is therefore important for franchisees to have an experienced franchise solicitor on side to help them navigate the intricacies of franchising law. Our franchisee solicitor partners with franchisees to take the stress out of franchising law, so that you can concentrate on what you do best-growing your business.

What makes us different?

Many law firms say they can assist franchisees, however many lack the all-round knowledge and expertise to provide the level and breadth of advice and guidance needed. Our franchising lawyers have extensive experience across all facets of the various areas of the law that are needed to protect you including franchising law, competition law, property, commercial law, litigation and employment law.
