  • Full Description

    Business law and commercial litigation specialists, share your breakfast with franchising experts, Kristie Piniuta (ACCC) and Stephen Giles (Norton Rose Fullbright), and join with them for a discussion and debate on:

    • the most significant recommendations from the Parliamentary Inquiry Report of The Operation and Effectiveness of the Franchising Code of Conduct likely to be implemented which will affect the franchising sector
    • the potential impact of these changes on day to day practice
    • the submissions made by the ACCC to the Inquiry and the projects implemented in the interim by the ACCC to address perceived issues with the sector.

    A brief update on the repeal of section 51(3) of the Competition & Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) and the impact that this has on IP agreements will also be provided by the Chair and Facilitator, Alicia Hill, due to its relevance to franchise systems and IP Licensing agreements.

    As with all of our Breakfast with the Experts events, attending this session will give you the opportunity to submit ‘questions on notice’ prior to the session and participate in an extended Q&A/discussion with Stephen and Kirstie.  Both of our speakers are happy to answer any questions on the day, making this a valuable event for any senior practitioner with a franchising practice.

    Please be reminded that you can attend this event in person or via webinar.
