Franchising is a contractual commercial relationship where the franchisor allows a franchisee to use its trade name, marks and brands while exercising continuing control over a franchisee. The franchisor is usually obliged to provide training and assistance to a franchisee. The franchisee is required to make an initial and continuing payment to the franchisor.

Dillon Solicitors is a law firm which provides a wide range of legal services to business and private clients for over 16 years. We have developed expertise in the franchising field in over the years and we offer effective and practical advice to our clients in relation to all legal issues affecting franchising.

  • Advising on the franchise manual which sets out the day to day requirements for franchisees
  • Advising on leases and sub-leases
  • Advice on franchisor's commitments and obligations and advice if these are clear and unambiguous
