Franchise Agreements

Shameela Chinoy is experienced in franchise law and has represented both franchisors and franchisees in the following ways:

  • Setting up a franchise including the registration of trade-marks and the preparation of the necessary disclosure documentation as required by Ontario law including:

         franchise agreements

         guarantees & indemnities

         software & trade-mark license agreements

         general security agreements

  • Buying and selling individual franchises

  • Revising foreign franchise documents for use in Canada

  • Licensing agreements

 

Franchises have been an increasingly popular way of carrying on business in Canada. Franchisors must be careful to comply with the disclosure requirements of Ontario franchise law, The Arthur Wishart Act.


For the franchisee
it is important to understand the legal obligations imposed by the franchise agreement and other documents. In certain circumstances after consulting with a lawyer you may be able to suggest changes to the franchise documents prior to signing them.

Whether you are buying an individual franchise or setting up a new franchise system, Shameela Chinoy can provide you with legal advice having regard to the unique nature of the relationship between a franchisor and franchisee and the law governing franchises in Ontario.
