Review of Franchise Documents
There is no doubt that the journey into franchising can be a very exciting and rewarding experience but the legal documentation can also be quite daunting for any prospective franchisee. For many franchisees, a Franchise Agreement has the potential to impact heavily on their lives. It forms the basis of the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee and sets out each party’s rights and obligations for the term of the agreement and beyond.
At Baybridge, we know that you will be wanting to “get it right” from the outset and we have the experience and expertise to guide you through the documentation and give you the confidence and comfort you need to make an informed business decision.

We have assisted many franchisees across the country negotiate the best deal possible and advise them of their obligations under the applicable documents.
