Publication | Archived video not available


As the use and regulation of franchising as a business model continues to expand, it is becoming increasingly important for the general practitioner to be able to recognize what is (or what might be) a franchise and to understand its fundamental principles and regulatory requirements.  This publication is intended to give lawyers who do not regularly practise in the area, the necessary framework to identify, analyze and resolve basic franchise issues in order to advise both franchisor and franchisee clients.
