Franchise Lawyers

Franchise Lawyers

We act for both Franchisees and Franchisors from initial franchise documentation and preparation to litigation and disputes.
Franchising is a separate area of commercial law and requires different legal advice from that of other business-related transactions. It is unique that it has it’s own legislation and Code of Conduct as well as being covered by the other areas of law that affect businesses.

Our franchise lawyers have extensive experience in acting for both Franchisees and Franchisors from Franchise Agreement Preparation to disputes and litigation. We can assist you with providing quality advice and outcomes for any stage of your franchise legal matter.


We act for many franchises and offer concise commercial advice on your franchise and any disputes you may have with your franchisor. We achieve results for our franchisee clients.



Franchisors require legal advice that is considered and up to date with the latest changes in law and the Franchise Code of Conduct.


Franchise Disputes & Litigation

We handle franchise related disputes from acting for sole franchisees to larger group matters.


Our firm offers our commercial clients a high quality and professional legal service backed by a team that is experienced in franchising law. This experience in handling franchise matters end to end ensures that you are fully informed when it comes to making important decisions relating to your franchise.

We understand the impact and nuances in handling disputes and can act for clients not only across Melbourne and but Australia-wide.
