Buying a Franchise Sydney
As a business owner, investor and entrepreneur, your business agreements and the transactions by which you acquire, sell and protect your “business assets” are critical to the viability of your business and its success. Our lawyers understand the importance of representing a buyer or seller and working with the relevant stakeholders, representatives and financers to deliver outcomes in an efficient manner. We aim to ensure we facilitate and assist in the deal process rather than hinder and more importantly deliver on our clients’ expectations within costs agreed to upfront. Baybridge has been involved in many sales and purchases- whether structured as an asset purchase, stock purchase or a combined transaction involving asset transfers, trade mark and IP licence arrangements and integrated non-compete obligations- we have an established and resourceful process and team that you will benefit from. Buying and selling a business is something that you carefully need to do with the advise of experimented lawyers.
Review of Franchise Documents
There is no doubt that the journey into franchising can be a very exciting and rewarding experience but the legal documentation can also be quite daunting for any prospective franchisee. For many franchisees, a Franchise Agreement will be the most important document that they enter into in their lives. It forms the basis of the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee and sets out each party’s rights and obligations for the term of the agreement and beyond.
At Baybridge, we know that you will be wanting to “get it right” from the outset and we have the experience and expertise to guide you through the documentation and help to give you the confidence and comfort you need to make an informed business decision. Having worked directly in the franchise industry for many years we understand the subtleties to look out for, in terms of the benefits and risks to consider before purchasing a franchise. We have assisted many franchisees across the country negotiate the best deal possible and advise them of their obligations under the applicable documents.
