What is Franchising?
Franchising is not a business itself, but a way of doing business. It is essentially a marketing concept, an innovative method of distributing goods and services.
Franchising can be described as:
A specialised commercial contract under which the owner of a marketing system, business, service or product which is identified by brand name or trade mark (the Franchisor) grants to another person (the Franchisee) under certain conditions and subject to the exercise of controls, the right to use the brand name or trade mark and/or the system and engage in business for the purpose of distributing the product or service.
Before entering into a Franchise agreement:
Comino Prassas Sydney Franchise Lawyers will provide you with professional and legal advice regarding your rights and obligations in relation to legal and commercial consequences of the business contract you are contemplating entering into.

We have extensive experience in resolving disputes with Franchisors through negotiation, mediation and where necessary initiating court proceedings in the event of a breach of the franchise agreement or other relevant legislation.
