Franchising a Business

The nature of a franchise network is such that often the major problems are results of what was done or omitted at the very beginning. Thus, the most important stage of a franchise system is complete before you grant the first franchise.

At Franchise Legal, we go a long way beyond mere legislative compliance. We learn your business from A to Z. That understanding, together with our years of experience, allows us to advise you on how best to future-proof your business ensuring the greatest chance for your success.

We often become an essential partner in the franchise development project and can introduce other relevant specialists in fields such as finance, demographics and operations.

To speak with one of our franchise lawyers about the “franchisability” of your business, call 1300 798 501.

Are you an established Franchisor?

We have industry best practice processes in relation to the full lifecycle of a franchise agreement, including:

  • Marketing for franchisees
  • Presentation of the franchise offer
  • Negotiation with the franchisee’s legal advisors
  • Managing the sale of a franchisee’s business and assignment of franchise to the purchaser
  • Dispute resolution including negotiation, mediation and litigation
  • Dealing with poor performing or problem franchisees
  • Renewal
  • Termination
