What Is Franchise Law?

Owning or starting a franchise starts with the drafting, negotiation, and review of unique agreements and contracts that outline certain necessary issues, such as payment, fees, restrictions, daily operations, and termination agreements. This contract is the most important part of the franchise life-cycle and can help ensure that your business runs smoothly.

Added to this, a number of other complex issues are involved in franchise law, including:

  • Negotiating with third party suppliers
