Services for Franchisors and Franchisees

Do you have a great product or service and a growing brand you are looking expand (a “franchisor”), or have you found a good ready-made product or service backed by a reputable brand you can sell (a “franchisee”)? If so, franchising, agency or a distributorship may be for you. Our solicitors Joe Middleton, Chris Biggs and Graeme Parker have assisted many clients set up or acquire franchises, agencies or distributorships large and small.


As a franchisor, we will get to know you and your product and/or service so as to ensure that the franchise agreement protects your brand appropriately. This means that you can sell your concept with confidence, knowing that the value locked up in your intellectual property is yours to keep.


As a franchisee, you will want to know that you are not paying unusual or excessive fees for the franchise and its component parts. You will want to know more about other franchisees, where they are situated and how you can compete with them, if at all. What restrictions are placed on your business as a franchisee and how might they affect you? Remember it’s your money, your livelihood at stake and your reputation with it.

Whether you are a franchisor or a franchisee it is important to ensure that the rights and obligations of each party are set out clearly and concisely to avoid difficulty later. That’s where we have helped many businesses.

Get in touch for a free no obligation discussion about the ways we may be able to help you. Alternatively please complete the contact us form and we will contact you at a time which suits you best.
