franchise agreements

Whether you wish to franchise your business or are looking to enter into a franchise agreement our experienced lawyers are able to help.  In particular, if you are intending to enter into a new franchise agreement they are able to advise you of any pitfalls to be wary of and assist you in negotiating amendments to standard franchise agreements.

Here are some examples of recent matters that we have been involved in:

  • Drafting a franchise agreement and advising in setting up a franchised network in the sports coaching industry;
  • Advising a client who was offered a franchise agreement in an employment agency business;
  • Advising on a client in relation to a franchise agreement with a national restaurant chain.

What our clients say:

“From my first meeting with Danielle through until completion of our job I felt entirely in knowledgeable and capable hands. I was always kept up-to-date with the progress and milestones we needed to take and Danielle was efficient and diligent in following up with all parties to ensure the process moved along smoothly. Danielle was always available to answer and clarify any queries I had. I’d be very happy to recommend Danielle and her team at Geoffrey Leaver and will of course take any future legal problems I may have directly to Danielle for her expertise.”
