Franchising is not itself a business, but a way of doing business. A franchisor is someone who has achieved a proven system for success through their business model and branding, and has chosen to duplicate that system by franchising.
If you have a successful business that you wish to consider franchising, then at Stone Group Lawyers we can assist by:
- Working with you to determine whether franchising is right for your business, and advising on the best structure for your proposed franchise system;
- Advising on the process of setting up a new franchise system, including compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct and the Competition and Consumer Act;
- Advising on the protection and structuring of intellectual property, including preparing licence agreements and registering trade marks both nationally and internationally;
- Preparing a full suite of compliant disclosure documents, franchise agreements, franchisee application forms, confidentiality deeds, step in deeds and all other documents to establish a franchise system.
Once your franchise system is up and running, see the further Franchisor Advisory Services we can offer.
