MST Lawyers are pleased to congratulate our newest lawyer admitted to practice, Elizabeth Moore, and Joy Allen for being awarded Legal Executive of the Year by the Institute of Legal Executives (Victoria).
We have witnessed activity in the Court system around cases where wholly or predominantly supplied services are considered retail, regardless of whether or not these services are supplied to the public or business-to-business.
Fundamentally, the judgements determine whether or not leases of this nature are governed by the Retail Leases Act 2003.
It has long been a debated topic whether or not estate agents are legally permitted to draft special conditions for a Contract of Sale. This is a matter that should not be taken lightly, particularly given that the maximum penalty for contravening the law is two years imprisonment.
MST Lawyers was honoured and delighted to receive this year’s Supplier of the Year Award at the MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards on 10 October 2017. The Award recognises supplier excellence in contributing to the franchising sector and helping franchising clients achieve their goals.
