Our franchise business law clients are generally quite ‘hands-on’ and have information at their fingertips. When looking to buy, they have checked their finances and have a good idea of how much they can spend, they know what sort of business they want to buy, and have been actively looking at businesses for sale.
Our sellers have been thinking about and preparing their business for sale. They have a good idea of how much their business should sell for, the tax consequences of the transaction and (importantly) how they want to spend their money.
Our business and franchising clients look to us for our expertise, practical advice and strategy, and great service. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, we can help:
- Maintain confidentiality;
- Perform a legal due diligence – review licenses, leases and franchise agreements;
- Reviewing, drafting, negotiating and advising on a sale contract; and
- Representation through to settlement of the matter.
We work closely with our clients, their financiers, franchisors, lessors (and their various sets of lawyers) in order to drive the transaction forward, while protecting our client’s interests and giving them the information they need to stay in control of their transaction and to productively manage their transition.
Contact us now – tell us what you are trying to achieve and we will be able to give you a fixed price for our professional fees, give you a checklist of issues to consider and get you on your way.
We were fortunate enough to team up with Chris Adolphe when we decided to franchise ATM2GO in 2011. Chris helped us set up the franchise and wrote all of our documentation. Chris is now an important part of our business as it continues to grow. I run all kinds of legal (and general business) questions by Chris, he is quick to respond and always gives very practical advice. Lawyers are not cheap but not getting the right advice can cripple a business very quickly. Chris has always given good value for the work that he has done and we look forward to growing our business further with his help and advice.
