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.

So easy

No thinking involved, super easy and super fast. Great for busy and evolving businesses needing any legal documents.

A good experience

Fast and easy to use. The ability to remove clauses on the go would be helpful, as i end up downloading as a docx and deleting them manually. I did not use the esign feature because of this reason.

Quick response and easy to work with

Claire did a great job reviewing my document and providing details that were easy to understand. Claire was also able to complete the job in less than 24hrs and was a pleasure to work with.
