The bfa are delighted to have contributed to the International Comparative Legal Guide To: Franchise 2019 (ICLG).
The ICLG series offers comprehensive views into current and practical comparative legal information on a range of practice areas such as copyright, data protection and real estate.
One of the many educational guides produced by the ICLG includes franchising. The ICLG contains a wealth of information on common issues in franchise laws and regulations including competition law, real estate and protecting the brand and other intellectual property, in a range of jurisdictions.
Emily Price, Head of Operations at the bfa, has contributed an informative chapter to this guide in which she delves into the significant challenges and current issues that the bfa has identified within UK franchising, and what actions the bfa are taking to resolve them. This includes making sure franchisors are transparent with their finances, securing suitable properties and locations, and sustaining the rapid growth of franchises. Ultimately, the message is that the future is franchising.
Emily also discusses the importance and the need for a regulatory body in the franchise industry. The bfa not only keeps franchising credible and reliable, but identifies risks and areas of improvement. The bfa are essentially the eyes and ears of the franchise industry and strive to become the leading educators for franchising by providing expert advice and sharing inside knowledge.
