Peter Sanfilippo


The Franchise Lawyer is owned and operated by Peter Sanfilippo (BA, LLB, University of Sydney), a solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and of the High Court of Australia.

Peter has worked as a qualified practising lawyer for more than 30 years.

Peter began his career at the Sydney office of Baker & McKenzie, an international law firm with over 50 offices worldwide.  There, he worked on large disputes involving international accounting firms, tobacco companies and breach of copyright, and gained valuable experience in commercial litigation.

He was employed there and in other Sydney city commercial law firms for the following 9 years, and among other things acted in a litigation role for clients such as Domino's Pizza and the Westfield property group.

Peter founded his own legal practice in 1998 and soon afterwards began to specialise in franchising law. He has delivered papers about franchising at legal seminars, contributed articles about franchising to numerous publications, made submissions to government enquiries relating to franchising and been consulted by the government in relation to changes to the Franchising Code of Conduct.

Peter Sanfilippo's approach to the practice of franchising law emphasizes practicality, common sense and personal relationships, but never loses sight of detail and accuracy.
