Description
The Arthur Wishart Act (Franchise Disclosure), 2001 (the "Wishart Act"), and the regulation made under it, sets out the basic rights and obligations of franchisors and franchisees and it is crucial that lawyers practicing in this area are fully versed on the requirements of the legislation, especially the extensive disclosure obligations imposed by the Act. Whether you are acting for the franchisor or the franchisee, you need to know what must be included in a Disclosure Document to make it compliant and to ensure that your client's rights are protected. Experienced counsel will give you the information and the practical strategies you need to successfully meet the needs of your clients and protect yourself from liability.
