Franchise legal services
Mills Oakley is a full-service national commercial law firm. We are resourced by over 100 partners and more than 700 staff, servicing clients in all capital cities and regional centres. We have offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.
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.
The Mills Oakley Franchising team is led by Melbourne Partner, Warren Scott, who holds a Masters in Commercial Law and has expertise in the areas of governance, distribution, international trade, franchising and the commercialisation of intellectual property. Warren is consistently selected by his peers for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in Australia in the practice area of Franchising Law and recognised globally by clients and peers in Who’s Who Legal: Franchise.
Warren is supported by Accredited Specialist, Partner, John Turnbull, Associate, Jacqui Murphy and Lawyer, Cassandra Taylor.
