Franchising

Providing legal advice to franchisors and franchisees for more than 25 years, our team has developed significant knowledge and understanding of not only franchising law but also the dynamics of owning, managing, buying and selling a franchise.

We regularly advise in relation to compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct, drafting and negotiating franchise agreements, disclosure documents and ancillary documents, sales and purchases of franchised businesses, leases, sub-leases and licenses for franchised premises, multi-tiered franchising, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) compliance, IP strategy, trade mark registrations, portfolio management and all types of dispute resolution.

With a comprehensive list of clients spanning from large, mature franchisors to small operations across a range of industries, we have significant experience in establishing various franchising systems. This experience, along with our ongoing membership of the Franchise Council of Australia, has allowed us to remain at the forefront of the franchising sector ensuring our clients receive sound legal and commercially-viable advice.
