Answer

No unlike Australia and the United States which heavily regulate franchising, there is no franchise specific legislation in New Zealand. General legislation such as the Fair Trading Act 1986 which regulates fair dealings in trade, the Contractual Remedies Act 1993 which apply to franchising but there is no specific legislation which deals with franchising. Members of the Franchise Association of New Zealand Inc. are required to comply with the Code of Practice and the Code of Ethics of the Association but membership is voluntary.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to John Stirling and Kathryn Wynd for their patience and understanding. We are so honored to have John and Kathryn looking after us. Whenever someone asks if I know of legal firm, I always say Turner Hopkins.” ~ Manaia
“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
