Franchising

Using a franchising system to finance and accelerate growth can be a lucrative way to expand your business in local, national or international markets. The $144 billion Australian franchising sector offers significant opportunities for franchisors and franchisees alike. Yet where there’s opportunity, there’s always risk.

Our team of franchising lawyers has the expertise and skills to help you successfully navigate the issues throughout the life cycle of a franchise or licensing business model, providing support at every stage of the franchising process. We assist businesses in all areas relating to franchising, including establishing franchise systems, raising capital, completing mergers and acquisitions, resolving disputes and rejuvenating, maintaining and purchasing existing franchises. We also have expertise in advising on international franchise transactions and overseas operations.

We work closely with franchisors, franchisees and their accounting, tax and other franchising advisors to provide practical solutions that achieve sustainable benefits. This approach is reflected in the local and international success of clients we have advised in a wide range of industries, many of whom are award-winning and acclaimed franchisors, master franchisees and franchisees.
