Franchisee

Due to the complex nature of franchising, and the fact you may be using your life savings to buy your franchise business, it is essential that you seek assistance from expert franchise lawyers like those found at PCL Lawyers, when looking to buy a franchise.

It is a mistake in buying a franchise not to seek legal advice first from boys to understand this complex area of law.

We provide advice in relation to:

Franchise Purchase and Pre-Purchase Due Diligence

We can provide you with advice in relation to your business structure as well as carefully considering the impact of different clauses in the Franchise Agreement and, where applicable, the Premises Licence Agreement, Lease or Sublease.

We will listen to your requirements and provide advice in relation to your rights and obligations as a franchisee. Many franchisees do very well from a franchise over the years but a franchisee who has not considered his or her obligations going in, and the long term impact of various clauses, can see their investment diminish in value rather than appreciate. Proper legal advice going in, followed by a consideration of commercial ramifications of legal issues will go a long way to ensuring that you have a positive franchise experience.

Disputes with Franchisors

If you have a dispute with your Franchisor, please contact us as early as possible in order that we can advise you as to your rights and obligations so as that the dispute hopefully remains contained and is quickly resolved.

Franchise Litigation

Where disputes have escalated to the litigious stage, we can represent you in either settling the matter as quickly as possible or otherwise defending your position with vigour.

Please call us now on 1300 907 335 to discuss your situation or fill out the contact form on this page and we’ll be right back to you.

Branden L, Ravenhall

Excellent Service. PCL did a great job advising me about my rights and protecting my name and business goodwill. I can absolutely recommend this very professional service.

Brett Wilson/Glen Waverley

If I had of gone to another law firm that was cheaper I may have saved many thousands of dollars but as it turns out I may have lost a lot more than that upon settlement. Using a firm such as PCL lawyers I had the peace of mind that each issue as it arose was dealt with in a very matter of fact way and to the letter of the law.

Out of speaking to two other lawyers you were the only one to give me any genuine advice.

Morgan S/ Australia
