IBB Owen White Solicitors


IBB Owen White is one of the leading firms of franchise solicitors in the UK, with over 40 years’ experience advising franchisors and franchisees.

Owen White Solicitors merged with IBB Law on 01 January 2023, meaning we can now offer Owen White’s many years of specialist franchise law expertise alongside IBB Law’s extensive experience in the automotive and hospitality sectors and its full range of business and private client legal services.

Over the years we have worked with many franchisors, helping them to expand their businesses through franchising.  Our work for franchisors includes drafting franchise agreements, dealing with any franchise questions raised by prospective franchisees, litigation matters and advising on master licence and regional development agreements.  We also deal with the sale of franchise networks for franchisors.

We provide a franchise agreement review service for prospective franchisees, the details of which are set out on our website www.owenwhite.com.  The service involves reading the franchise agreement and writing a report in plain English for a prospective franchisee to ensure that they fully understand their rights and responsibilities under the franchise agreement they are proposing to sign.

We also act for franchisees who wish to buy an existing franchise business involving either the acquisition of shares or assets of the existing franchise business together with acquiring the premises from which the franchise business operates.

Owen White fully supports EWIF in all its aims and ambitions to encourage women to consider franchising as a way of expanding their own business as a franchisor or taking the step into business ownership as a franchisee.
