Are you planning to launch a franchise project and do not yet have a team of franchise lawyers to offer you security?

Hire expert franchise lawyers to advise and defend your rights and interests as a franchisor or franchisee


What is happening?

The globalization of markets and technological changes have led to the emergence of various distribution contracts aimed at making certain products and services available to customers under the best possible conditions.

One of these contracts is, precisely, the franchise contract where both the franchisor’s and the franchisee’s rights and obligations are set out. It is a complex and often conflictive contract, which is why it is necessary to have the specialized advice of franchise lawyers.

In general terms, franchising is a technique of collaboration between companies whose purpose is the transmission by the franchisor to the franchisee of a set of know-how related to the resale of products or the provision of services under the same label.

In theory, franchising is an indirect expansion procedure, advantageous for both parties: for the franchisor because it allows him to retain control of the decentralized operation, shifting the investment and the risks inherent to it to a third party (the franchisee); and for the franchisee because it allows him to participate in the goodwill of a consolidated company that possesses management and marketing techniques experienced and proven by the franchisor, thus enjoying a certain competitive advantage in the market.
