Benefits of Hiring a Franchise Lawyer On the Gold Coast

Committing a legal error can be devastating for a small to medium enterprise. Large corporate companies possess the resources to combat legal battles efficiently, but relatively new franchises may suffer losses to their financial standing and reputation.

  • As an entrepreneur, nobody expects you to know everything relating to commercial law. A franchise lawyer has spent years training and educating themselves to become an invaluable asset to business owners. We keep up to date with any changes in legislation to assist when you’re in trouble and provide advice to prevent you from making legal errors in the first place.
  • The point of hiring a commercial lawyer is to protect your business interests. Whether you’re about to sell your franchise or purchase one, you need someone with the relevant knowledge to act and speak on your behalf. A qualified lawyer assists in keeping you in line with the law by providing your employees with their entitled rights or demonstrating your terms and conditions to your clients.
  • It’s easy to allow your emotions to sway your decision regarding litigation. It’s a critical decision to make as it could affect your company’s reputation and revenue streams if you don’t handle the situation correctly. Having a commercial lawyer by your side provides you with sufficient guidance from a legal perspective.

Tips for Hiring a Franchise Lawyer in Brisbane

There are numerous law firms in the country, each with their positive attributes. However, it’s up to you to identify the perfect lawyers for you to recruit in Brisbane.

  • There aren’t better testimonials than from people whom you know and trust. Don’t be afraid to ask them for recommendations. You might find a law firm that someone you know worked with previously and they could be the perfect match for your company.
  • If you can’t find any reputable lawyer through word of mouth, inspect the social media pages of a firm that interests you. Current franchise lawyers realise the integral role social media plays and often provide ample information on these sites. Visit their LinkedIn profiles and read the reviews of other users and the content the firm posts.
  • Before you hire a law firm, you’re entitled to ask questions relating to your case. A reputable commercial lawyer will furnish you with answers to your questions and then provide a quotation for their services. Once you’ve done this, you can be comfortable with hiring the law firm.

FOR FRANCHISEES

So you’ve found a potential franchise and you want to “buy in” ASAP right?

But before putting your hard-earned cash into a franchise, it’s a good idea to know the ups and downs of what you’re getting yourself in for.

That means you need a high quality, practical review of the business and the documents to highlight any risks you might be unexpectedly taking on.

What you DON’T need is a 63 page essay on franchising law, written in legal gibberish, that you can’t understand and which doesn’t offer any real value to you at all.

Our review process for franchisees ensures that:

  • We understand where you’re coming from;
  • We give you the advice you actually need; and
  • You understand that advice and why it matters.
  • Anything less than that and we wouldn’t be doing our jobs right.

We’re also happy to team up with your accountant (or if you don’t have one, we can give you a recommendation) to check over the numbers and ensure that you’re getting a holistic analysis of the business you’re looking to buy.

Don’t put up with slow, meaningless advice that doesn’t give you any actual help – get practical, useful and targeted advice on the important issues from our dedicated franchising lawyers at TWC.

Hands down No.1 law firm in Brisbane! Would highly recommend TWC Criminal Lawyers to anybody facing a criminal charge. I would particularly like to acknowledge Tam Elabbasi and Martin Longhurst for their incredible efforts in helping me throughout the last 3 years. They are not only the most elite in their field of criminal law but are down-to-earth, kind and non-judgemental human beings. For a couple of very intellectually superior men they actually have a great sense of humour too... ha go figure! In a time of crisis, you need a team that is competent, professional and reliable but having additional moral support and optimism makes a massive difference too. I was initially made to serve time in prison but was given an early release and a no conviction recorded and subsequently the opportunity to continue my studies in Medicine. In all my court appearances and encounters with law enforcement, they clearly explained the implications and possible outcomes for the case I had. They are very knowledgeable, personable as well as professional, and easy to communicate with even on a colloquial level. I always trust their advice and it was clear and conclusive. I felt reassured and well looked after with their services. I felt their commitment to assisting me in my legal battles extended beyond just a paycheck but that they truly like to see people do better with their lives and seek justice. I am so grateful and blessed that I decided on this Law firm to act on my behalf. I don't know if I would be here today able to pursue my dream career if it wasn't for the hard work of this team. I am very happy with the outcome that they fought hard for and would happily recommend this practice to anyone. Legends! Thank you

I couldn't recommend Wesley and the team enough. Wesley provided clear and concise advice, quick responses and a wealth of knowledge and really helped my partner and I understand everything we needed to know with regards to starting a business. If you need a business solicitor or a lawyer in general, then definately reach out to Wesley.. He really took the stress out of the legal processes involved in purchasing a business and is a very genuine person who wants to help. Thanks Wes!

I couldn’t be happier with the result Samuel Hwang achieved for me. I owe my life to Samuel for getting me a second chance when I thought it impossible. I searched through countless lawyers who seemed cold and uncaring until I found Sam who straight away put my mind at ease with his professionalism and kindness. He went above and beyond to provide me with the best possible outcome and for that I will be forever grateful.
