Our goal is to help mitigate the complexity of the franchising process.
Franchise businesses are unique in that they are often faced with a wide range of issues involving many different areas of law – contract, business, labour and employment, intellectual property, to name a few. As a result, both franchisors and franchisees often require advice from lawyers with a diverse range of experience. At BOYNECLARKE LLP in Halifax – Dartmouth, our clients benefit from the Franchise Law Team’s ability to utilize our firm’s diverse practice areas to provide practical and comprehensive advice and solutions.
Our dedicated team of lawyers has a thorough understanding of the franchise business model and understands the legal requirements, challenges and opportunities that business owners may face.
