Our team of franchising solicitors have considerable experience in franchising law, in particular franchising litigation and dispute resolution.
Franchising is a big market in the UK. With the number of franchised owned businesses on the rise, this makes it likely that at some point during the franchisor/franchisee relationship there may be a dispute between the parties.
These disputes may include inflexibility of terms, lack of independence, failing to reach key targets, or impacting the brand/reputation of the franchise.
