When entering a business contract, nobody expects that it will become the subject of a dispute. However, contract disputes are an unfortunate fact of life for many business owners.

From the outset, it is vital that all parties to a contract are aware of the range of dispute resolution methods available should a dispute arise, including arbitration.

Arbitration is an effective alternative to litigation, particularly valued for the confidentiality and flexibility it offers to the parties involved.

Corporate and M&A

Whether you are an established small or medium-sized enterprise, run a family business, or you are only just starting out with a business idea, well-drafted and clear ownership structures and governance arrangements are essential.

Businesses are always founded with optimism and excitement. However, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes things can go wrong down the line and leave you unprotected. Adequate arrangements can provide for what happens if, for instance, partners disagree on major business decisions, dispute to which extent each is responsible for running the business, or wish to exit the business altogether.

To prevent your relations with business partners (especially if they are friends or family members) from deteriorating and avoid costly legal disputes, Barnes Law can leverage its market insights to optimally structure your business in a way that is clear to everyone involved.

Franchise Law

A franchise allows the franchisee to trade under the brand of the franchisor, following the franchisor’s proven business format. This allows brand owners to exploit their existing intellectual property and generate additional revenue without the commitment of further capital. For the franchisee the agreement lowers their risk through following a business model that has already been demonstrably successful elsewhere. Barnes Law with extensive experience can assist you in drafting and negotiating your next franchise agreement.
