Franchise legal services
Our legal expertise is complimented by our understanding of the underlying commercial issues.
Advising in this area requires familiarity with a number of key legal concepts and an understanding of what is and what is not ‘standard’ or ‘acceptable’ within the confines of a relational contract like a franchise agreement.
Our team has expertise in contract law, trade practices, intellectual property, commercial litigation, retail leasing, employment law and international trade. The ability to bring together these skills enables us to advise on the establishment and maintenance of a franchised network, to advise you on your franchise agreement or assist with a dispute.
