Purchasing a Franchise

If you are considering purchasing a franchise, getting an experienced business lawyer's consultation is paramount. There are numerous laws that regulate the purchase and operation of a franchise business.


When you start a business that is a part of a franchise, you will be granted specific rights to market items and services under that franchise's trademark. Additionally, the contract between the franchisor and the franchisee needs to be comprehensive, and its terms must be carefully considered.


So, before you get into a franchise agreement, it is highly recommended that you have your own personal KLG franchise lawyer who reviews the terms and conditions with you to ensure that you understand them and that they are fair, rational, and structured to foster your success.

A Franchise may commence its operations once a contract is established and both parties agree to terms and conditions. Being a part of a larger franchise business comes with its own set of specific requirements, and it is vital for an individual franchisee to fulfill all of those needs.

Your franchise’s products and services must be offered in accordance with the specifications outlined in the contract by the franchisor.  In exchange for the use of the franchisor's trademark, branding, and other intellectual property, the franchisee agrees to pay back a certain percentage of its gross earnings/profits to the franchisor.

Litigation between a franchisor and a franchisee might occur if there is a breach of contract or if the franchisee's expectations are not satisfied. These disputes can result in the loss of trademark rights in addition to financial damages. In the event of such litigation, the sophisticated and experienced legal representation that KLG provides will be a key to your success.
