This video is about the franchise attorney. A franchisor and franchisee enter into a contract with each other. This cooperation must be very clear on both sides, as both parties must adhere to this. There are rights and obligations.
If there are any problems, you would think there is a franchise law that must be adhered to. There is not (yet). A bill has been made, but it has not yet been approved. However, there is the Dutch Franchise Code, these are rules of conduct that the industry has drawn up itself. At present, case law (the rulings in previous court cases) is leading over what can and cannot be done in the franchise world. It is therefore important that both franchisors and franchisees have good legal assistance in the event of disagreement.
