Franchising

We recognise that for prospective franchisees, purchasing a franchise (like the purchase or start-up of any new business) can be a daunting experience. If you are looking at a franchise opportunity you are strongly advised to seek early legal advice on the terms of the agreement so that you fully understand your rights and obligations. Taking such advice today may prevent future problems and expense.

At Morecrofts, we offer a comprehensive franchise service, drawing upon many years of experience acting on behalf of both franchisors and franchisees. Our specialist lawyers have assisted many clients throughout the UK with the purchase of new and existing franchise businesses (most of which are household names). We have also drafted (or amended) master franchise documentation for a wide range of different franchise businesses, which remains in use by franchisors to this day.

As a new, or existing, franchisor we can offer a full range of services from drafting your franchise documentation, protecting and exploiting your brand and intellectual property rights, and dealing with disputes with/termination of existing franchisees.

Our advisers will strive to understand your commercial requirements and take a practical approach which ensures that the needs of your business are met and any risks are minimised.

We understand how worrying legal costs can be so we have a range of payment options available to suit your budget and needs. For many of our services we offer fixed fee packages alongside our traditional fee system and we will help you decide which option is right for you.
