Franchise Law

Legal Advice for Franchisees

Purchasing a franchise can be an exciting and rewarding experience; the benefits of which are well publicised.

Statistically, buying into an established franchise has much lower risk of failure than other start-ups and once signed and sealed, a franchise agreement should give you immediate access to a tried and tested business format.

Are you tying yourself into a long-term contract?

However, a franchise agreement can entail significant financial commitment. You may be tying yourself into a long-term contract with substantial obligations.

Personal guarantees may also be required, making you personally liable if the business doesn’t thrive.

And importantly, you will have put a lot of trust into your franchisor and their promises of a successful franchise. Franchisors do not always keep their promises.

If you are thinking about becoming a franchisee, thorough research and good advice are of paramount importance.

We can help you with:

  • Franchise Agreement Reviews
  • Franchise Re-sales
  • Property Leases
  • Franchise Disputes
