Whether your business is a start-up, growing or mature, you might benefit from using a franchise model. Franchising is a tried and tested technique that can help you grow your business much faster than following a traditional corporate expansion programme.

Whatever your needs, we offer a genuine one stop shop of franchise specialists, who are able to help you prepare to franchise your business and ensure that the risks in your particular business model are identified, reduced and managed through a combination of training, legal contracts and commercial best practice. Dependent on the variant adopted by you, we can develop/advise on:

  • agreements including franchise agreements;
  • policies;
  • ongoing counsel throughout the franchise network;
  • tax requirements;
  • advertising and marketing;
  • franchise disputes; and
  • brand protection and enforcement.

We are uniquely positioned to help you establish the right system, manage the roll out and deal with disputes, investments and exits. You will benefit from our network of contacts, prior knowledge of comparable deals, structures and legal pitfalls to avoid in certain jurisdiction.
