Franchise Agreements

Getting the right franchise agreement in place is critical to establishing a successful relationship between franchisor and franchisee that allows both to see a positive return on the franchise.

Glanvilles Business solicitors advise both Franchisees and Franchisors on a regular basis. So, whichever you are, we know exactly what kind of deal the other side is trying to obtain from an agreement with you.

If you are a Franchisee, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible before entering into a Franchise Agreement. This will give you the best possible chance of securing the deal you need to make your business a success.

Your Glanvilles solicitor will be able to identify other areas that you may have to give consideration to, issues such as: asset purchase agreements, assignment of titles or rights and property purchases.

If you want to become a Franchisor, Glanvilles will make sure that you get the most from your business. We will ensure that it is structured in such a way so that it attracts the right sort of people or businesses as franchisees.
