Owen Hodge Lawyers offers reliable and friendly legal advice on franchising.
Each franchise is different and there are many important issues to be covered by both franchisors and franchisees.
Before purchasing a franchise you should consider such issues as the length and cost of the agreement, reputation and trading record of the franchisor, what advertising budget and back-up services are offered, the fees payable to the franchisor, the terms of sale for goods supplied by the franchisor and the obligation to conform to the franchisors business practices.
Franchisors will need to comply with the Franchising Code of Practice and Owen Hodge Lawyers can advise you on the requirements of the franchise agreement and disclosure document.
Our lawyers have experience in all aspects of business structure and contracts in addition to specific experience with franchising. This allows us to offer you the best advice in your new business venture.
