Building your franchise network seminar

Fordham and HWL Ebsworth Lawyers are pleased to invite you …

… to the first of two informative presentations discussing franchising, how to build your network, how to add value to your network and ultimately realise that value!

Richard van der Merwe of Fordham Business Advisors will provide some handy financial tips and tricks, along with his thoughts on innovation and expansion

Richard has acted for many national household franchisors and his diverse background equips him to assist with the varied needs of his private business clients. Richard has had significant exposure to capital markets, including purchase and acquisition, mergers, valuations, capital raisings, finance and sale of business.

Tony Garrisson of HWL Ebsworth Lawyers will discuss due diligence, change management issues and the challenges of dealing with territories
Tony is head of HWL Ebsworth’s Retail and Franchising group. As one of Australia’s leading franchise lawyers, Tony practices in respect of all aspects of structuring, restructuring, sale, purchase and establishment of domestic and international franchise systems. He acts for clients in many industries, and has spent nearly five years as Corporate Manager and Legal Counsel for a national franchise retail chain with over 100 stores.

Chris Malcolm of Clark Rubber will share his valuable experience along with insights on the client experience!
Clark Rubber was a public company acquired by AdStream in the 1970s. Poor management and declining sales saw the final store close in the 1980s, when Chris Malcolm approached the (then) owner and opened his first store. Over time, the range grew to exceed 20,000 product lines, going on to win Australian Franchise of the Year. Now, the franchise group has over 80 stores across Australia, accounting for around $110 million in sales per annum!

Not only will you receive key insights on franchising, light refreshments will be served and we look forward to seeing you there! In addition, you are also welcome to bring along a colleague, or even a fellow business owner who may benefit from Fordham’s specialised service offering or HWL Ebsworth’s legal expertise.
