Franchising can be a win-win for all involved. As a franchisor, having established a successful business model, you can grow your business without having to generate all the organic growth yourself, while the franchisee doesn’t have to reinvent a model, but can build on the development put in by others. Not to say all models work; some are more successful than others.
Banks are always more comfortable funding franchises over start-ups as generally failure is less common among franchised businesses.
The key ingredient in franchising is Intellectual Property; as experts in this field, we are able to assist with the following:
- Creating franchise agreements
- Developing the documents which sit around the franchise relationships – confidentiality agreements, leases and subleases, employment contracts and employment insurance schemes
- Advising on, negotiating and applying for trademarks and creating other forms of intellectual property protection
- Advising on the balance of agreements, on enforceability and reasonableness in franchise agreements.
