New Zealand’s franchise sector is a significant contributor to the New Zealand economy and is the business structure of choice for many business owners.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in clients seeking advice in respect of Franchise as they look for new ways to plan for succession of their existing business or want to engage in business through structured arrangements where risk is sought to be systematically minimised.
