Franchise Agreements

Franchise Agreements

A franchise agreement will usually permit for the franchisee to effectively run their own business under the established brand of a franchisor. They will be granted a license to trade under the franchisor’s name and are provided with training and support, usually in exchange for the expectation that the franchisee will contribute towards the growth and success of the brand and return the investment of the franchisor through the payment of royalties.

We are able to provide advice whether you are a franchisor requiring advice on the franchising model (including the drafting of bespoke franchise agreements), or a franchisee requiring advice on the agreement that will govern your future relationship with a franchisor.
