Franchising is a highly-regulated industry
We predominantly advise franchisors in relation to the franchise structure, leasing and property arrangements, franchise contracts and disclosure documents, franchisee management and code compliance.
We also act for franchisees at times.
The goodwill of a brand can be adversely affected by poor-performing franchisees or imitators. Protection of brand and intellectual property is paramount. Our commercial lawyers know how to structure your arrangements for maximum protection and our litigators know how to engage court processes.
