British Columbia relatively recently adopted franchise legislation to protect potential franchisees, legislate the duty of fair dealing, and clearly set franchising requirements so that each franchise is sold and bought with sufficient information to determine whether it is a sound investment.

We have assisted a number of franchises in British Columbia with franchise disclosure documents, franchise agreements, other franchise related documentation, and generally navigating this new legal framework. We have also represented our clients in litigation where franchises fail to adhere to legislated requirements.
