Franchising

GLG offers technically sound, cost effective legal advice to franchisors and franchisees.

Franchising is a highly regulated, complex area of law. Our lawyers and consultants have the legal skills and commercial understanding to guide clients through the process.

Our advice in franchising and business strategies, operating structures, systems, compliance, documentation and dispute resolution provides our clients with the necessary legal basis to become involved in the franchise process with confidence.

We also work with leading franchise consultants and professionals in associated fields, such as accounting and business mentoring. Our franchising practice is supplemented by our intellectual property and information technology law section and our commercial practice, which includes leasing, employment relations and the following: 

  • the Code of Conduct
  • dealing with the ACCC
  • legal audits, due diligence and risk minimisation
  • distribution and licensing
  • product and idea commercialisation
