Legal issues you need to consider for navigating Brexit

BLM's Rebecca Young highlights six legal issues you need to consider now in relation to Brexit, if you are a franchise business owner or partner.

Writing for What Franchise, Rebecca says: "Franchise agreements are like any other business arrangements, with their foundations rooted in the laws of England and Wales and unlikely to be disturbed by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU alone.

"Though there is no specific legislation or overarching franchising laws that regulate the franchising relationship, if your agreement takes you outside the UK or directly within the EU, you may need to revisit its terms and consider the applicability of certain laws after the UK withdraws from the EU."
