Andrew has been instrumental in guiding us through the process of franchising Milky Lane which included drafting our suite of franchise documents, registering our trade marks in Australia as well as overseas.
Andrew is a Trade Marks Attorney at LegalVision.
Before joining LegalVision, Andrew undertook a clerkship in Scotland, and worked at Gadens and Minter Ellison in Melbourne, and DC Strategy in Sydney. Andrew draws on his substantial corporate law experience to assist clients to achieve their desired results in ways that are both legally and commercially pragmatic.
Andy is experienced in a wide range of commercial law matters, and specialises in business sales and purchases, franchising and intellectual property. He has experience with a range of contract drafting and review projects, and seeks to ensure transactions are completed efficiently and effectively. He is able to quickly understand a client’s business needs and provide advice on commercial matters and trade mark protection strategies both nationally and internationally.
Since coming to Australia Andrew has adopted AFL as his new favourite sport, but regrets that a broken wrist has kept him off the field the past few years.
Drafting and updating franchise documents for emerging or existing franchise brands.
Advising and assisting franchisors manage their franchisees to ensure compliance with the franchisor’s standards and expectations, the franchise agreement and the Franchising Code of Conduct.
Advising clients on and managing the court process and where possible, seeking resolution without the need of court intervention.
The legal work provided by the team at LegalVision has been invaluable to Just Cuts. LegalVision’s balance between quality and efficiency is particularly impressive and integral to the success of our many franchised outlets. Their lawyers maintain a consistently high quality of service and their fixed-fee approach is a breath of fresh air.
Amber Turnbull, Just Cuts (COO)
LegalVision assisted with a number of legal docs and advice including negotiating with large corporates. They demonstrate pragmatism, experience and deep understanding of our business' risk profile, and has led to us counting LegalVision as an integral ingredient to the overall success of our business.
Anthony Bekker, ROKT (Head of Operations Strategy)
We have worked with LegalVision on our shareholders agreement, employee share scheme and a capital raise. Their fees are very reasonable compared to “name” firms and they have repeatedly gone the extra mile and demonstrate they know the startup space.
John Baini, TruePillars (Co-Founder & CEO)
LegalVision's lawyers are the team you want by your side when reviewing and negotiating contract terms. We’ve worked with LegalVision during our Friends & Family Round where they prepared our convertible notes, and during our seed round which we closed with excellent terms and well ahead of schedule.
