Hire the perfect franchise lawyer

We’ll source you fixed-price quotes from experienced franchise lawyers.

What is a franchise lawyer?

Franchise lawyers focus on providing bespoke, expert services for all facets of franchise and transactional law. Our network franchise lawyers all have over 10 years of experience and operate on a fixed-fee basis, meaning all costs are explained from the get-go.


 

Why do I need a franchise lawyer?

Franchise law is a complex area, due to constant changes in legislation and it being a rather niche practice area. You’ll find that most franchisors don’t have the experience to prepare sufficient legal documents, leading to the possibility of disputes around breaches and terminations of franchise agreements.

Our franchise lawyers are experts in Australian franchise law, with in-depth knowledge on the new Franchising Code of Conduct and Compliance Manual.


 

What does it cost to hire a franchise lawyer?

Being such a niche area of law, it is common for a typical franchise lawyer to charge as high as $800 per hour for their services. This is far from ideal when you may have little understanding of what the end costs may be.

All of our lawyers work on a fixed-fee basis to review and amend your franchise documents. When you submit a quote with LawPath we’ll source fixed-price quotes for your franchising needs, giving you the ability to choose the service that best suits your budget.


 

What will they provide?

After choosing the right franchise lawyer they’ll work on reviewing your franchise agreement inside and out to identify any areas of concern. Depending on your requirements they will also be able to modify or negotiate the agreement to keep your best intentions at heart.

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.

Great experience and website

The document was so easy to create. I can't trial the payment side but from the 1 free document i was given, it was really simple to use. They have such a large variety of documents and the effort put into this is really wonderful and appreciated. Legal documents are already hard and tedious and lawpath have really made it so easy. I think this is great for anyone not wanting to spend thousands on legal fees for each of these documents. Team this was such an incredible idea!
