Greyson Legal is a boutique commercial law firm with a niche focus on providing legal services across franchising law and intellectual property (IP).

We are an Australian law firm based in Queensland, but we represent clients with interests across Australia and internationally.

You can trust a law firm headed by a Principal with 20 years legal experience.

Although offering a broad based commercial law practice, we have a particular focus on franchising law - representing both Franchisors and Franchisees. Whether you are a successful entrepreneur considering growing your business through franchising; an existing Franchisor looking for expert advice about expanding your franchise network; or new to business and considering franchising as a business model, you can be rest assured we have the know-how and hands on experience necessary to guide you through each process.

We have extensive experience advising in the area of intellectual property law, including registration processes, protection and enforcement of IP rights. For example, we can assist you with trade marks, copyright, designs, domain names, confidentiality, licensing and trade secrets.

At Greyson Legal we also assist our clients around information technology (IT) law issues, such as:- software and hardware agreements, service level agreements, ITlicensing and general IT contracts.

More broadly, we provide a range of legal services covering business law, corporations law, employment law, real property law, general commercial law and business succession law.

You can be confident we have the skills to assist you with accurate, timely and cost effective legal advice and assistance.
