You might consider buying a franchise as a way of getting into business, as an alternative to starting a business from scratch or buying one that’s already running. Alternatively, you may already be running a successful business and need expert advice on how to go about expanding your enterprise through franchising.

At The Quinn Group we are able to advise and assist you in a wide range of franchising related matters.

Franchising your business

Quinns franchising lawyers cover every aspect of franchising in Australia’s fastest growing industry. Franchising your business is a cost effective means of expanding your business organically, allowing innovative ideas to flourish in a competitive environment.

Quinns franchising lawyers realise that getting started is often the hardest step in turning your successful small business into a national or internationally recognised brand. Navigating your way through the franchising regulations may seem daunting, however Quinns franchising lawyers can simplify the process for you, and provide easily understandable practical advice to help you realise your dreams.

Our franchise lawyers can assist in compiling your franchise agreement:

  • Tailoring a franchise disclosure agreement

  • Drafting franchise contracts

  • Creating franchise master agreements

  • Providing franchising law and litigation advice

  • Enabling alternative dispute resolution services

  • Explanation of the franchisers code of conduct and other relevant legislation

Buying a Franchise

As a multi disciplinary practice Quinns experience covers all aspects of buying a franchise from auditing the existing business opportunity, to advise on the legal and compliance aspects of buying into an existing franchising network.

As Australia’s fastest growing industry sector, franchising is often presented as a mechanism for independence and financial security; however it is imperative that as a potential buyer you are informed of all aspects and possible downfalls of the second largest purchase you are likely to make.

Quinn’s franchising lawyer’s advice will enable you to make an informed decision and perhaps help you negotiate more favourable terms for your purchase.

When purchasing a franchise it is important to read and understand the disclosure document that will accompany your application. Our franchising team will explain the documents to you in plain language so that you can identify the following:

  • Has the franchisor has been in business a long time?

  • Has the franchisor has a proven track record?

  • The fees associated with the purchase of the business, including ongoing and marketing costs?

  • What sort of support you will receive from the franchisor?

  • What sort of training will be provided?

  • Will your territory be exclusive?

  • Are you in an expanding market?

  • Are you able to finance the purchase?
