The franchise business model is complex and highly regulated, and requires extensive planning and expert knowledge across various areas of law, including the Australian Consumer Law, commercial and corporate law, property law, employment law, and intellectual property.
Vault Legal’s experienced business and franchising lawyers can assist Franchisors or Franchisees in relation to any franchise matter or dispute. Our prices are transparent and fixed.
Buying or selling a franchise?
Buying or selling a franchise is more complicated than buying or selling an ordinary business, as a transaction of this nature also requires the consent of the Franchisor, and must be completed in accordance with the Franchise Agreement.
Vault Legal can provide tailored legal advice, and solutions to assist you with any prospective sale or acquisition of a franchise business.
Drafting franchise agreements
Vault Legal assists Franchisors to draft and prepare franchise documents, including Franchise Agreements and Disclosure Agreements. If the Franchisor leases or licenses business premises, we can prepare a Licence or Lease Agreement. If the Franchisor acquires an interest in the Franchisee company, we can assist by preparing Shareholders’ Agreements and Employment Contracts.
Franchising a business
Vault Legal assists prospective Franchisors to establish a franchise business by advising them about franchise systems and processes, franchise operations manuals, franchise documents, and compliance with the Franchise Code of Conduct.
Franchise disputes arise for a variety of reasons, including where a Franchisee is performing poorly, or where the Franchisor is not performing its obligations under the Franchise Agreement. Vault Legal has extensive experience negotiating, mediating and resolving disputes between Franchisors and Franchisees.
Franchise advisory services
Vault Legal provide business advisory services to Franchisors and Franchisees who require legal advice in relation to their rights and obligations under a Franchise Agreement, the Franchising Code of Conduct, or need help reviewing or updating their Franchise Agreement.
