Franchising is big business – for franchisors and franchisees alike.
Canada (and in particular, Ontario) has long been home to the launch of new franchises, both homegrown and through expansion by US and overseas brands. When done properly, the opportunities are limitless. However, a misstep can result in frustrations that can grind expansion to a halt. Our business law group has helped countless franchisors and franchises navigate the law with a focus on business growth. From disclosure legislation through the nuances of fair dealing, to broad scale mergers and acquisitions or sales, as well as finite franchise disputes, we have the experience to help make franchises work.
