Franchise dispute solicitors

It is common for franchisors and franchisees to disagree at some point after a Franchise Agreement is first drawn up. This is due to circumstances and aspirations changing over time and the document not altering to reflect the situation. A franchisor may have agreements with a number of franchises; therefore a detailed assessment at regular intervals of each relationship often does not occur.

Our commercial solicitors have experience of acting for both franchisors and franchisees.
