Growing your business via franchising

Growing your business via franchising


Franchising is an important and legitimate business format for the UK economy, leading to an overall contribution of £13.7 billion and employing an estimated 561,000 people according to the latest industry figures.

If you have a successful business that is capable of being replicated elsewhere, franchising can be a very effective way of expansion and if done properly and ethically, can bring long term financial reward for all parties.

The franchising process takes considerable time, effort and money and therefore it is important at the outset to determine whether or not franchising is indeed the right model for your business. This introductory course will help you consider the issues involved from a legal perspective.

Emily Sadler is an experienced solicitor and franchise law specialist. She advises both franchisor and franchisee clients in a wide variety of business sectors. She has put robust documentation in place to help clients set up franchise networks and is on the panel of recommended lawyers for Toni & Guy, Bar Sport and Clarriots Care franchisees. Paris Smith is an affiliate member of the British Franchise Association.

Laura Trapnell is the firm’s intellectual property specialist and advises franchise clients on how best to protect the value in their brand which is all important in franchising.
