Clarke Jeffers have advised its clients on all aspects of Franchising (both small and internally recognised) for upwards of 20 years. The concept behind franchising is that a good idea, service or product can be replicated over and over. Despite the simplicity of this concept, the area of law is often complex. Autonomy can be lost very quickly and the appropriate support structures to balance this need to be in place.
Our Firm uses its combined specialist knowledge in the areas of Franchising, Commercial / Company Law and property to provide a full service to its clients and to ensure that what is always a big business step is taken with full knowledge and the best possible chance of success.
Our clients know that buying a Franchise is not cheap (particularly if it one of the bigger more recognised brands) but they do it because it brings a degree of certainty to their business. A structure they can rely on and support that is tried and tested. Most importantly it brings a ready made and recognised brand. What follows therefore should hopefully be footfall. With a large investment for this certainty, it is crucial that the legal agreements underpinning the relationship are just as solid and understood. Our straight-talking business minded approach helps us work with our clients to efficiently get the business up and running and on the best possible terms for that client. Get the basis right and you give yourself the platform to succeed.
“If anyone thinks that Franchising doesn’t work, they obviously have not bought a McDonalds in Minsk.”
