Franchise law and lawyers

 

What is franchise law?

Franchise law is the area of law that sets the framework for business arrangements between franchisors (the sellers of the business idea or methodology) and franchisees (the buyers that will trade under the franchisors name). The franchisor offers a viable business model and the know-how to get things started, the franchisee is authorized to use and market goods or services under the franchisor's trademarks, service marks, and trade names for a specific length of time and for a specific amount of money.
