Services For Franchisors

Goldstein Legal is a straight-talking, commercial law firm, specialising in franchising.

Based in Windsor, in the Thames Valley, our team of expert lawyers thrive on delivering solutions and will not rest until they’ve achieved the best possible outcome for you.

Your success is our success.

Franchising: The Inside Track

We are an affiliated member of the British Franchise Association (bfa). This means you can relax knowing we understand the requirements and expectations of the bfa.

We have a proven track-record of providing excellent legal services to established franchisor clients, and those looking at franchising for the first time. With over 20 years’ experience in the franchising industry, our team has the expertise to help your business thrive.

Thinking of Expanding Your Business Through Franchising?

Franchised brands continue to out-perform their industry competitors in a number of key aspects.   So it pays to take advice at an early stage.  We can help you decide whether franchising is right for your business and can run through other options with you, such as brand licensing and product distribution.

We create bespoke franchise agreements for clients across a wide range of different industries and sectors.  Once you’re ready to launch your new business, our expert legal team will produce a tailor-made franchise agreement, written in plain, accessible, jargon-free English.

Rest assured that your franchise contract will be in a form that works for you, protects your interests, and will be an invaluable tool as you build your business.

For Established Franchisors:

We provide legal support to all aspects of business, helping to ensure the long-term health of an enterprise. This can include:

  • Drafting and negotiating master franchise agreements
  • Amending and advising on existing franchise agreements
  • Advising and assisting with franchisee disputes
  • Franchise agreement terminations.

We frequently act for franchisors who are expanding overseas, by creating their franchise agreements for international markets.

We also act as a “first port of call” for a number of franchisors on all their commercial legal needs, drafting all types of commercial agreements, property leases, and advising them on intellectual property issues.

Franchise Disputes:

We have a proven track record in franchise dispute management including:

  • Pursuing franchisees for unpaid fees
  • Closing down under-performing franchisees
  • Trade mark infringement and breaches of brand guidelines
  • Taking action against franchisees for breach of their franchise agreement

We are experienced in both High Court and County Court proceedings as well as franchise mediation through the bfa.

Franchise Re-sales:

We act for franchisees buying or selling their franchises.  Franchisor clients often refer their franchisees to us as they know that we provide practical and timely advice, and that we will get the deal done promptly and cost-effectively.  At the same time, we make sure that the franchisor’s interests are protected.

Franchise Agreement Reviews:

We offer competitive fixed fees for franchise agreement reviews.  Again, franchisors often refer their prospective franchisees to us for this, confident that we will provide an easy-to-follow Franchise Agreement Review and Report with all the key provisions of the agreement summarised.  Our seven-day turnaround policy, means that you’ll always receive the level of service you expect and require.

“We have an enviable track record in the franchise industry of providing consistently high quality, relevant legal advice.  What makes us different is that we handle every case with the care and attention we’d employ if we were doing the work for ourselves. I think that it’s this personal approach that really takes the stress out of important commercial legal transactions.”  Roz Goldstein, Founder, Goldstein Legal

Whatever stage you’re at on your franchise journey, our commercial and legal insight will help you build a legal framework that protects your business and promotes success.
