The success of any franchising operation depends on maintaining professional and cooperative relationships between franchisors and franchisees. The business lawyers of Marwah Law advise and represent both franchisors and franchisees in the protection of their individual rights as well as in understanding their unique obligations under the law.

We assist clients who own or operate franchises in drafting complex franchise agreements in accordance with franchising laws and requirements as determined by the different Canadian provinces, in particular the provinces of Ontario, which have passed legislation specific to franchising agreements.

Our franchising practice also provides services for franchisees in the following areas:

  • Establishing a new franchise
  • Purchase and sale of an existing franchise
  • Review of franchise agreements and related agreements
  • Negotiation of franchise agreement terms, if appropriate
  • Assistance with ongoing business operations
