The Australian franchise sector is arguably the most heavily regulated in the world. That means you need a specialist lawyer who knows how to navigate this complex legal framework.
At Stone Group Lawyers we have a team of business, commercial and litigation lawyers with an exceptional record that spans decades in providing advice to franchisors and franchisees on franchise law. We know the Franchising Code of Conduct like the back of our hands.
Our team have advised many franchisors from the initial set up stage through to established systems, as well as acting for many franchisees and master franchisees in a variety of franchise systems. We see beyond legal issues, providing practical, coordinated and results-driven commercial solutions.
Our Gold Coast and Brisbane franchising lawyers take the time to understand your business to develop close and long-term relationships. We pride ourselves on being a valuable member of your team. Whether you are a franchisor or a franchisee, we will work with you to find the best outcome to maintain and maximise your franchisor-franchisee relationship.
