Sherrards works with some of the biggest names in the UK and International franchising sector.
Sherrards Solicitors is a long established and rapidly expanding commercial law firm.
Its recent growth has been achieved as a result of a distinctive style of working and by recruiting some of the region’s most capable lawyers.
Sherrards has a client base that ranges from multinational retailers through to smaller family run businesses. Clients share the benefits of working with a law firm that is able to match the capability of larger London firms whilst being delivered by lawyers who have empathy for the broader strategic and cultural needs of their organisation and its employees.
It has a reputation as one of the leading franchise experts outside the City and is one of a small group of practices that is affiliated to the British Franchise Association.
The respected 'Chambers UK 2009’ guide to the legal profession ranks the franchising team fourth nationwide applauding their ‘innovative approach and broad commercial expertise’ and quoting clients as ‘exceedingly happy’ with the team.
The franchise department has a prestigious client base and experienced solicitors with both keen business sense and an excellent understanding of franchising. Services range from stand alone franchise agreements, franchise development and master licence agreements, intellectual property and brand protection, through to dispute resolution.
The specialist franchise team also works closely with other departments including company commercial and commercial property to provide a coherent, responsive multi-faceted franchise law service.
