BHP Law offers a fully comprehensive franchise team to our clients both franchisor and franchisee. Our franchise team includes the professional skills of our corporate and commercial, commercial property, employment and dispute resolution teams. Our service includes an initial face to face meeting at either our office or yours, accurate cost structures, providing commercially focused legal advice and keeping you informed throughout your matter. 

For franchisors, franchising can be a fantastic opportunity to quickly expand your business by sharing your vision, business skills, brand and reputation. If you are thinking of pursuing this route, we can assess whether franchising is right for your business, advise on next steps and deliver the legal documentation required to protect your brand and to ensure the operation of the business.

For franchisees, this allows an independent person or company to use a franchisor’s brand, business methods and ‘know how’ to begin a successful business. Franchisees are likely to have to pay an initial fee for buying into the business and pay ongoing fees for the use of the brand and support provided by the franchisor. We can review your franchise agreement and inform you of your obligations and requirements to ensure that you are fully informed. This then allows you to focus your efforts on the running of your new venture.
