“For many years, I was the owner and director of a large real estate franchise in Sydney. I decided to go my own way and wished to exit my franchise agreements with the franchisor. I turned to Baybridge Lawyers as I knew they had the right knowledge of the franchise industry and the ability to provide me with expert advice about my legal position.
Baybridge’s Litigation Partner, Blake Palmer, was able to successfully negotiate the end of my franchise agreements which enabled me to proceed with my business. I found the Baybridge litigation team to be clear communicators who were able to quickly understand the relevant issues and provide prompt and effective legal advice. I would recommend them to any other franchisor or franchisee who finds themselves in a dispute.”Peter Mumford
“I was the director of a company that carried on a national home grocery delivery service. My company was not trading as forecasted by my franchisor and it was only a matter of time before I would have to liquidate the company. The franchisor was not prepared to buy my company back and I found myself in a very difficult situation.
I turned to Blake Palmer of Baybridge Lawyers and his litigation team to assist me with my situation. They were able to successfully negotiate with the franchisor that my franchise agreement was to end without penalty and I recovered the market value of my territory. As a result, I could continue with my life without the ongoing stress of a failing business. In fact, I am now happily retired !
I found Blake and his team to be excellent litigators, very proactive and able to explain the process in a way that was easy to understand. I would recommend them to every business owner who finds themselves in trouble.”Director - Tres Generations Pty LTd

We are the owners and operators of a pizza franchise business which operates nationally. We found our business in some trouble when we received a formal notice of breach from our franchisor alleging that we had breached various terms of our franchise agreement. Our franchisor was applying immense pressure on us to fix the alleged breaches and we were struggling to meet the imposed deadlines. We needed to save our business and protect our franchise agreement from termination.
We had previously dealt with Baybridge Lawyers in relation to the purchase of our franchise business. As they provided us with excellent service and assistance then, we contacted them again and only a few days after our initial contact we met Baybridge’s Litigation Partner, Blake Palmer, and his litigation team to discuss our matter. Blake and his team took the time to understand our issues and the difficulty we were faced with. The clear line of communication and strategy really was the key to a successful outcome of the dispute with the franchisor. Within a couple of weeks, all issues with the franchisor were resolved and we were able to operate our business as normal. That was a great relief to us and we would recommend Baybridge to anyone requiring fast and effective legal advice in relation to a commercial dispute.Names withheld for reasons of confidentiality
