Legal Advice on Franchise Agreements
We have substantial experience in acting for both Franchisors and Franchisees.
For information on disputes, see Franchise Disputes.
We have represented several large Franchisor companies as well as Franchisees in Perth and Western Australia for the last 25 years in contract preparation, commercial litigation and franchise dispute matters. We have handled litigation in the Supreme, District and Magistrates Court in Western Australia and worked jointly with Eastern States Lawyers on a High Court appeal on a very high profile case, known as the Pizza Hut case.
Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates and fixed prices for commercial work and for litigation are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms. Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.
We also regularly review Franchise Agreements and Disclosure Documents for franchisees and give advice on the rights and obligations under the Franchise Agreement before it is signed. We can help people considering entering into a franchise make the best decisions because of our substantial experience in acting for both sides.
It is important for a Franchisee to fully understand the risks and their obligations under a Franchise Agreement before they enter into a Franchise Agreement and to take advice from the best Franchise Agreement Lawyers in Perth.
If a dispute has arisen, we give the best legal advice to Franchisors and Franchisees on their rights and obligations under the Franchise Agreement as well as advice on the best dispute resolution methods.
