Franchise law

Investing in a franchise can be a profitable business venture. Unfortunately, in the UK, there are no specific laws regulating franchising arrangements. As a consequence, the franchise agreement forms the foundation of the business relationship and the source of all rights and obligations, and the reference point for dispute resolution.

In this section we set out what a franchising agreement entails, significant terms in a franchise agreement to look out for, and the factors you need to consider when buying or selling a franchise.
