Lawyers Real Estate is on track to become the world’s first franchised law firm. Follow our progress as we establish our pilot franchisee and roll out our concept.
In keeping with our philosophy of openness and transparency, we’re inviting interested parties to follow the progress of the operation.
Stage 1 – After months of research by Mr. Phil Blain of Franchise Alliance (our franchise development consultant) with legal advice from Mr. John Sier of Mason Sier Turnbull (our specialist franchise lawyers), the feasibility study has been completed. The result of the feasibility study was the firm conclusion that franchising should proceed.
Stage 2 – We will soon establish a pilot franchisee to further test the market, refine our systems and iron out any wrinkles before calling for expressions of interest from other lawyers. We’re also in the process of negotiating arrangements with various service providers, to ensure that we can offer a complete out-of-the-box Lawyers Real Estate franchise which can be quickly and easily “bolted” onto any existing legal practice.
How to follow our progress
Rather than explain how our concept works (what’s on offer, the legal aspects, compliance matters, how we will work with our franchisees etc.) at some later date, we want to ensure that potential franchisees are kept informed from the outset.
We are also keen to answer questions, and to have open discussions about our concept in an open forum. To this end we have established the Lawyers Real Estate Franchise Group on LinkedIn.
