What will they provide?

Your selected lawyer will review your business sale agreement to identify any liabilities and ensure you’re getting the best result for your transaction. This includes due diligence, intellectual property considerations and reviewing / adding clauses where necessary

It’s important to reiterate that franchise contracts are written by franchisors – so they are almost always one-sided! A franchise lawyer will ensure your agreement suits your needs and is fair on both parties.
