Franchise Law

We have a team that is capable of providing strategic advice on Franchises and all related business areas of law.


We act for both franchisors and franchisees and advise on new and existing franchise business systems and acquisitions.

Buying a franchise usually involves a significant outlay of money and financial commitment to landlords and banks. We can arrange for proper “due diligence” to occur before you commit to a purchase.

We provide the following services:

  • Preparation of new franchise business system documentation for franchisors and associated advice;
  • Reviewing franchise agreements and associated contracts for potential new franchisees;
  • Ongoing review and updating of franchise documentation including as required by law; and
  • Advice as to the legal responsibilities of franchisors under relevant legislation.

Our Franchise lawyer has over 30 years experience in franchising and has established a number of new franchise business systems for clients including the areas of beauty products, lawn and garden services and air-conditioning. He can provide ongoing advice as changes in law impact on franchise documents and methods.
