From preparing your franchise agreement to managing your national expansion, our franchise lawyers help our clients with the ever-increasing demands of running a successful franchise.
Franchising your business
As experienced franchise lawyers, we help our clients take the next step with their successful business enterprise. Establishing a franchise to expand your business can be both an exciting and rewarding experience. Hansra Law advises on all aspects in franchising your business. This can include our client’s business structure and format, franchise strategy and preparation of key contracts, such as the franchise agreement and franchise disclosure package.
Disputes with franchisees
Should a dispute arise with a franchisee, our client’s can feel comfortable knowing that they have experienced commercial litigation lawyers in their corner as well. Whether you are looking to renegotiate the terms of your franchise agreements, seek compensation for losses, or respond to a complaint, our franchise lawyers work collaboratively with our commercial litigation group to find an agreeable and cost-effective solution.
Depending on the structure of your franchise network, you may need to acquire properties or be party to a lease agreement. As a full service business and franchise law firm in Toronto, our lawyers work collaboratively throughout this process. We regularly advise on the suitability of properties, negotiate lease documents, advise on leasehold structures and subleases with franchisees, and represent your interests in any property matter.
Sale and exit from franchise
With a wealth of experience in buying and selling established franchise networks, our corporate services team will support you through the transaction, from the initial planning stages to completing the sale.
Managing your successful franchise
The goal of most franchisors is to create a continuously growing business, but expanding numbers of franchisees can often raise further issues. Our franchise lawyers guide our clients through this business journey, assisting with everything from organizational changes to franchise resales. Our goal is simple – to ensure a smooth transition and ongoing success.
