Bond Uni Professional Legal Training

Posted by Elizabeth Gore-Jones on 4 June 2015

I have just returned from lecturing the Bond University PLT course about the wonderful world of franchising.

Franchising is such an in depth and intricate area of the law, it is difficult to give tomorrow's lawyers a complete understanding of what is involved in the practise of franchising law.

I gave them a run down of the services we provide to franchisors including preparing a franchise suite of documents, business structuring, issuing franchise agreements and all of the front end services through to acting in a dispute, mediation and breach.

On the other side of the coin, I described the services we provide for franchisees, including reviewing and providing advice about new franchise agreements, business structures, buying an existing franchised business and again acting in a dispute, mediation and breach.

Whilst a general overview of the law, logistics and advice can be beneficial I try to give them an insight into the practise of franchising law that in excess of 20 years practise can provide.

Lawyers need to remember who their client is and be able to deliver advice and services which meet the needs of that client in a way which can be easily understood by the client.
