We act for both Franchisors and Franchisees.
We represent several large franchisor companies in commercial litigation and franchise dispute matters.
We also regularly review Franchise Agreements and Disclosure Documents which have been given to potential franchisees by the Franchisor and give advice on the rights and obligations under the Franchise Agreement before it is signed.
It is important for a Franchisee to fully understand the risks and their obligations under a Franchise Agreement before they enter into a Franchise Agreement.
If you already have a signed Franchise Agreement, we can give you practical and commercial legal advice on the clauses of the Franchise Agreement.
If a dispute has arisen, we can give you legal advice on your rights and obligations under the Franchise Agreement and advice on the dispute resolution clauses. For more information, see Franchise Disputes.
For Franchisors we can help you in disputes with Franchisees and help you recover outstanding franchise fees.
Because our offices are not located in the CBD our rates are substantially lower, often up to 20% lower, than most commercial law firms.
In our experience sometimes clients shop around with quotes that we provide, which of course is their right. We always tell clients, therefore, if they receive what they think is a better price they can forward it to us and we will match it.
