Some questions, which must be taken into consideration, are why and what are the reasons for the sale? What are you actually buying? What is the business customer base? What are the business costs? Is the business profitable?

Buying a franchise can be an exciting experience. However, we strongly recommend that before you enter into a Franchise Agreement, that you are well aware of your rights and obligations. Franchise Agreements are complex documents and relevant advice must be sought from your lawyer and accountant prior to signing any document.

Please contact us on Tel: (07) 3265 3888 should you require any advice in relation to buying or selling a franchise.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property, also known as IP, is the property comprised of your own knowledge or ideas. This includes inventions, ideas, trademarks, designs, brands, technology or application of your idea.

Contact us today on Tel: (07) 3265 3888 if you would like more information on how to safeguard your Intellectual Property.

Non-Disclosure Agreements

A Non-Disclosure Agreement is an agreement entered into by parties who are bound by the terms of the Agreement, and which prevents either party from divulging information outlined in the Agreement.

Porta Lawyers can be of assistance in drafting Non-Disclosure Agreements and can advise you of your rights and obligations. Similarly, you should seek advice from us should you believe a party to a Non-Disclosure Agreement is in breach of such an Agreement. Please feel free to contact us on Tel: (07) 3265 3888 for further assistance.
