At Raeside Chisholm, our team of expert solicitors offers first-class legal support to clients, regardless of the inquiry or legal problem. Our solicitors' sole objective is to achieve a successful outcome for our clients in each and every case we handle.

Like any business relationship, franchises are occasionally the source of dispute. We can help resolve these disputes before they escalate saving both parties time, money and stress. If your relationship with your franchisee/franchisor is in jeopardy, we can help.

Resolving Franchise Disputes Scotland

Franchising agreements can be complex. They often involve various clauses relating to time, payment and performance. If the latter two are not met you may find yourself not only losing money, but unable to pay the franchisor. When this happens, the franchisor may look to take legal action.

Often, it is the franchisee who wishes to take action against the franchisor. This occurs when, for instance, the franchisor has misrepresented the true cost of the franchise, the likely profit/cash flow or some other aspect of the business.

There may be other sources of dispute such as restrictions on trading and termination of the franchise agreement. Whatever the dispute, our franchise solicitors have the experience to handle it.

A franchise can be an excellent way to start your own business. Like any business venture however, there are certain pitfalls to be avoided.

Purchasing A Franchise – What To Look Out For

Whether you are buying your first franchise or your fiftieth, there are certain things that you should seek legal advice for:

Setting up the business entity – it’s important to establish the right business vehicle for your franchise, whether it is as a sole practitioner, a limited liability partnership, or a limited company, the choice of vehicle has legal ramifications for your business and for you personally.

Negotiating the franchise agreements – In a franchise agreement, the franchisor holds all the cards. It’s his (or her) business after all. Enlisting a franchise lawyer’s help might mean negotiating a more favourable deal.

Solving disputes – like any business venture, franchises are often the source of dispute. Sometimes these can be settled before they escalate but often they need careful handling. Most commonly franchising disputes involve performance – situations in which one party has not fulfilled their part of the bargain.

For expert advice on finding the right franchise, as well as expert handling of the legalities of the purchase and setting up of the franchise (including for instance property), contact us today.

Buying a franchise is a low-cost, low-risk way to run your own business. The right franchise will give you a business model which has proven successful and the right franchisor will offer you the ongoing support you need to make your business a success. As with any business venture, there are legal aspects which must be taken into account.

Franchising Legal Advice Scotland

A franchise is a business relationship between you, the franchisee, and the franchisor – the person who owns the business. You pay an initial fee (and normally an ongoing fee for support) for the right to trade under the franchisors brand name.

Franchises are a popular and often successful way to start your own business: an established brand with a proven track record, proven strategies and an existing customer base is much more likely to succeed than a brand new company.

We advise potential franchisees, existing franchisees as well as franchisors of the legal aspects of this business venture. In recent times we've acted for several franchisees in respect of some of the largest mainstream franchises in the UK, including Dominos, Subway and  Tim Horton's.

We advise on the following:-

Employment Law Advice Scotland

Employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of employees if they are pregnant at work. These rights include the right to paid time off for antenatal care, the right to maternity leave, the right to maternity pay benefits and the right to protection against unfair treatment or unfair dismissal.

Additionally, there may be family friendly entitlements for others. Parental leave, for instance, offers qualifying parents the right to take unpaid time off work in order to look after their child or make arrangements for their child'€™s welfare. Working flexibly can also be another potential option for employees, increasing the time they have to care for a child or other family member.
