Legal Advice

Directory of UK BFA approved franchise solicitors

The biggest mistake that prospective franchisees can make when buying a franchise is to not seek legal advice. The lack of legal advice is cited as one of the major reasons for franchisees failing. Cutting corners when it comes to using a lawyer when buying a franchise can be extremely costly in the long run. We cannot stress enough how important it is that all prospective franchisees take legal advice and that you only use a lawyer who specialises in franchising. Below is a list of all lawyers who are members of the British Franchise Association.
