Franchise Agreement

Else’s business solicitors have the right blend of experience and knowledge to advise on the complexities of business franchising.

Our expert team supports both would-be franchises and franchises that want to develop their businesses as part of a wider entity.

In recent years there has been a surge of interest in franchising. Ambitious entrepreneurs with successful business concepts have franchised out their achievements. And, many people that were keen to be their own boss, but wanted security, have bought into tried and tested business models.

Lack of quality legal advice is frequently cited as a top reason for new franchise businesses failing. If you don’t seek professional advice from a commercial solicitor you could end up paying far more in the long run, when a dispute occurs and you are not adequately protected.

How we can help

Else offer a range of services tailored to the individual businesses’ needs and budgets.

We can guide franchisees through potential any sort of franchise agreement they are considering. We will highlight and negotiate any clauses that we feel are unfair, not reasonable, or biased in favour of the franchisor.

We can also make you aware of the franchisor’s obligations to support you. They must provide adequate and specific training, marketing materials, and other types of on-going help.

If you need to acquire premises from which to operate your franchise, our specialist commercial property solicitors can assist you in negotiating a purchase or a lease.

For those that want to take the next step by franchising their successful business, we can provide you with the right advice and guidance to accelerate your growth.

To find out more about business franchising, please contact our expert corporate and commercial solicitors in Burton on Trent, on 01283 526200. Alternatively, you can send us a message and we will get in touch at a time that suits you.
