The concept is simple. In a franchise, an established business (the franchisor) grants someone (the franchisee) the right to trade under the franchisor’s trade mark or trade name. Whichever side of the franchising fence you sit on, Carter Bond can assist.
If you are a franchisor or if you are thinking of expanding through franchising, you should obtain the right legal advice to ensure that your brand and reputation will not be diluted. Carter Bond can ensure that the franchise agreements provide you the legal protection your business needs.
If you are a franchisee, you may be aware that Franchise Agreements are generally established on a non-negotiable basis, meaning that should you wish to enter into a franchise, you will have little to no choice on the terms. This makes it even more important that you are apprised of all implications of these terms. As your legal advisor, Carter Bond would help you to understand all possible consequences, risks, and costs of such an agreement before you entered into it.
