If you are a franchisor or franchisee looking to take on new business premises, we can look to provide clear and targeted advice specific to franchise matters, as well as usual matters, including:

  • Liaising with a landlord on behalf of either franchisee or franchisor to make specific arrangements;
  • Drafting provisions to allow for smooth transfers of lease arrangements if circumstances should change for the franchisee;
  • Advising either the franchisee or franchisor about their obligations under a lease and the ways in which these can transfer depending on circumstances;
  • Advising on any guarantee and/or deposit arrangement required by a landlord.
