Creating a franchise can be a great way to grow and expand your business. To start your franchise operations, you’ll first need an airtight franchise agreement to govern and define the legal relationship with your franchisees.
A franchise agreement will:
- protect your reputation
- set out your franchisee’s obligations
- clarify your own obligations
- define the duration of the agreement and what happens if either party wants to terminate early
- explain how to deal with disputes
Your lawyer can draft you a franchise agreement that works for your business and is compliant with competition law and the relevant code of ethics.
This service is for franchisors who want to draft a brand new franchise agreement.
If you are a franchisee and you would like a lawyer to review your franchise agreement, please see our service for reviewing documents.
