Under the terms of a franchise agreement, a franchisee is licensed to use the brand and intellectual property rights, including trademarks, patents, copyrights, names and designs, of a franchisor. Usually, a franchisee will buy into a franchise in order to share in a precise business model that has a proven track record of profitability.
These agreements underpin the successful operation of any franchise business. However, when entered into without the right advice, franchise agreements can impinge on the freedom, profitability, goodwill and good name of both parties and may occasionally give rise to disputes between franchisee and franchisor.
