I have been involved in many franchising disputes as counsel, solicitor and as mediator. I have acted for franchisors and franchisees.
In 2019 I wrote an article for Inside Franchise Business about the current mediation landscape in franchisin , and the effectiveness of mediation under the Franchising Code of Conduct. Check out my Inside Franchise Business article here.
I have been a regular speaker at legal conferences in franchising topics including at the Franchising Council of Australia’s legal Symposium in 2016 and 2018.
The Franchising Code of Conduct provides the process for mediation of franchise disputes. Click here for further government information about the Franchising Mediation Adviser.
