Franchise Law

Our excellent reputation within the franchise industry comes from many years of providing expert legal advice to both franchisees and franchisors.

Franchise Dispute Resolution & Litigation

During your business’ life cycle, there may come a time when you need to resolve a dispute, be it with a creditor, debtor or someone completely unexpected. We understand that litigation is costly, time-consuming and often a last resort for many clients. Our legal team has extensive experience in commercial dispute resolution and litigation. Every effort should be taken to try and solve your dispute before it is taken to the courtroom. Our franchise lawyers will work hard to achieve alternative dispute resolution and can provide mediation, negotiation and litigation where necessary.

Building a successful franchise is not just having the best business concept, tightest operations, or most efficient cost base. It’s largely a matter of having franchisees who are aligned with your goals and objectives. Our suite of marketing and sales services will help you find these ideal individuals.

Licensing, Supply & Distribution

You want to get your brand out there or are looking for ways to share and develop your product range, DC Strategy Lawyers can assist you in getting there with the correct frameworks and documentation, as well as advice along the way. Developing your business through licensing (or franchising) may grow your business using significantly less capital investment than you would need otherwise. But to do either, you will need a registered trade mark.

Intellectual Property & Trade Marks

Your brand could be your most valuable asset and if protected, your Intellectual Property (IP) can help you stand out from the crowd. It drives revenue and builds value. Your business is unique and needs to be set apart from the rest. Your brand and ideas are what get you there. Our lawyers can help you, not only establish and protect your trade mark, but also your ideas and design concepts, so as to protect you from imitators and ensure the value of your products and brand assets are retained.
