What it is
The production of legal papers that will codify the offer and the regulations that will govern the firm is one of the most significant elements in the franchising model formatting process.
The BITTENCOURT Group, through specialized lawyers and in accordance with the law, provides legal guidance throughout the franchise growth process.
ORIENTAÇÃO NO REGISTRO DA MARCA

GUIDANCE ON BRAND REGISTRATION
One of the most valuable assets in franchising is the brand. It must be safeguarded and duly registered with the appropriate authorities in order to be used by the forming network.
ADMINISTRATION OF NETWORK CONTRACTS
Signed contracts must be appropriately managed as the network grows. The BITTENCOURT Group manages the documentation for addendums, renewals, and subscriptions, assisting in the network’s legal management.
From the moment the franchisor begins looking for candidates, it begins to disclose varied information, some written and some spoken, that may contain trade secrets. All of this must be safeguarded by formal agreements and contracts.
In addition, many formalizations and legal assessments will be required during the process, such as trademark registration, contract preparation and review, document administration, and so on, all of which will require the supervision of a specialist lawyer.
All paperwork will strive to protect the parties and increase the transparency of the connection. Furthermore, it reduces the dangers of know-how transfer and concession of brand usage by the franchisor, as well as inappropriate use by the franchisee.
