What will they provide?

Your selected lawyer will review your business sale agreement to identify any liabilities and ensure you’re getting the best result for your transaction. This includes due diligence, intellectual property considerations and reviewing / adding clauses where necessary

It’s important to reiterate that franchise contracts are written by franchisors – so they are almost always one-sided! A franchise lawyer will ensure your agreement suits your needs and is fair on both parties.

Law path consultation customer review

We discussed shares in a company. Attorney murdock was generous with his time and giving high level strategy for me as a first time business founder. I wasn't aware of what there was to learn beforehand and was lucky that i asked questions that otherwise i would have assumed had obvious answers.

Amazing experience

Damin was fantastic and was super attentive. He understood my brief and how to assist me in the best possible way. Damin's service was nothing but outstanding. I felt very at ease speaking with him and he was able to articulate everything very well.
