Franchise law

i Legislation

Franchise contracts are not subject to specific regulation and the general principle of freedom of contract applies.

ii Pre-contractual disclosure

There is no mandatory pre-contractual disclosure requirement in Polish law, but there are some general rules that Polish law recognises, such as the pre-contractual principle of good faith (culpa in contrahendo) and certain other rules of the Civil Code. The confidentiality of trade secrets is protected under the Act on Combating Unfair Competition, even before entering into non-disclosure obligations.
