Franchise law is specialised and differs from other areas of law, thus you need find yourself an attorney that specialises in this specific type of law. Franchise attorneys represent the franchisor, as well as the franchisee. Smit & Van Wyk, Inc. specialist franchise attorneys provide both franchisors and franchisees assistance and legal advice.
A franchise contract is a legal, binding document or agreement between a franchisor and franchisee.
