Franchising requires specialist advice at an early stage to ensure the development of a successful and enduring relationship between franchisor and franchisee.
Mincoffs have a team of franchise solicitors with considerable experience in advising both franchisor and franchisees in all areas of franchising. We work closely with our clients from the start, helping to minimise the risk and avoid potentially expensive problems at a later date.
We are proud to be a Professional Affiliate member of the British Franchise Association (bfa), the original and largest not-for-profit trade association for franchising in the UK, ensuring that the advice on franchising given to our clients is of a high standard, consistent with the aims and objectives of the British Franchise Association.
We are also ambassadors of Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWiF) whose primary focus is to support women who are looking for a route into the franchise industry and whose remit is to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, encourage business women to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks.
The businesses we advise cover a wide variety of industry sectors, many of which are household names, including retail, telecommunications, hotelier and hospitality, veterinary and medical. This means that we can provide a seamless service in respect of all legal aspects of franchising, including corporate, commercial property, employment , intellectual property and franchising dispute resolution.
Our franchising solicitors are able to provide the following services:
- Franchise system start-ups
- Franchisee representation, including franchise agreement reviews and reporting
