Raphael Mellerio Challenge of restitutions following cancellation of franchise agreement

France - Aramis Law Firm

The challenge for franchise agreements is that restitutions made to franchisees often include entry fees and royalties paid by the franchisee during the agreement, while the services provided by the franchisor may not be restituted as such.
