At TLS Solicitors, we take franchising seriously. Its our job to make sure your franchise agreement protects your best interests, whatever side of the contract you’re on. We also have an impressive track record in resolving franchise disputes.
In the UK, franchised businesses sell everything from fuel to fast food, diet plans and dog grooming.
The vast majority of franchisee / franchisor relationships are positive and profitable for both parties. However, disputes can and do arise from time to time.
In franchising, a business owner (called a franchisor) lets an individual or business (the franchisee) replicate its business idea or model by granting a licence.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment), Regulations 2006 (TUPE) protect employees when a contract of employment transfers from one organisation to another.
Mergers and acquisitions, the sale of a business or the transfer of a major contract between providers are examples of where TUPE would apply.
