BCF’s multidisciplinary franchise and retail team represents a broad spectrum of clients in the franchising sector.
Our commercial lawyers structure and prepare franchise agreements as well as the ancillary documents required to run a franchise such as sub-leases, general security agreements, and software licence agreements. Our trademark professionals counsel and protect our clients’ trademarks with solid trademark license agreements. We also help prepare disclosure documents to assist non-Canadian franchisees with Canadian legislation compliance. Finally, our litigation and dispute resolution team helps clients understand the uncertain body of case law on franchising and use it to their advantage in the event of a dispute.
