Franchising Law

McMahon Fearnley Lawyers Pty Ltd is a member of the Franchising Council of Australia, the peak representative body for the Franchise Industry in Australia. We act for a number of franchisors advising on system development and structuring franchise agreements and disclosure documents, advising on franchise transactions, including the preparation of trademarks and licenses to protect the intellectual property of franchised businesses.

As part of its commitment to small-to-medium enterprises and the franchise industry, McMahon Fearnley Lawyers Pty Ltd also acts for franchisees wishing to buy existing franchised business and to comply with all regulatory requirements.

We have acted for greenfield franchises, having had experience in their establishment and have been a team member with franchise developers and consultants from conception to market.

We also have experience in resolving franchise disputes and, in particular, with mediation of disputes, either informally or formally, before the Office of Mediation Advisor.
