The business and legal relationship between franchisor and franchisee is quite unique. It is essential that the parties and their professional advisors, understand this dynamic. These professional advisors must also have a fundamental understanding of the respective rights and obligations imposed on franchisors and franchisees under the various provincial franchise legislation and under the franchise documentation that is to be executed between the parties.

One of the most beneficial and challenging aspects of franchising is the unique relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee. In many ways, the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee is very similar to that of common arm’s length transactions of independent businesses. However, the franchise relationship is made unique by the underlying foundation of interdependence between parties.
Franchising offers unique opportunities for both franchisors and franchisees; however, it is a complex and challenging legal environment for both parties. Understanding the complexities of this dynamic relationship is crucial for the franchisors and franchisees, as well as professional advisors who have been retained by either the franchisor or the franchisee. Those acting in a professional advisory capacity need a deep understanding of the obligations imposed on, and the rights afforded to, both franchisors and franchisees, as determined by the legal agreements and franchise documentation between the two parties, in accordance with applicable provincial laws and guidelines.
We provide a broad range of legal services for franchisors, individual franchisees, groups of franchisees and franchise associations. Our seasoned lawyers draw on many years of experience in franchise law, and a deep understanding of the complexities of the legal and business relationship created by the franchisor and franchisee, including the enforcement of the rights afforded to either party through either the court system or legal proceedings.
