Charles Antoun is the Group Director of Francom Group. Charles Antoun, director of Francom Legal, found there was a gap in the legal industry between providing a high level of legal advice to individuals and organisations that were ‘infants’ in their field or industry. Francom Legal wants to mature with the ‘infants’ of the industry and to support established businesses to sustain their status within an industry. The result is being able to provide innovative and complex solutions that focus on providing commercial value and coinciding with the legal parameters of the law.
Charles is a highly regarded commercial lawyer amongst his industry, with an extensive career acting both in-house legal counsel for leading Australian franchise-system networks. Throughout much of Charles’ career his service offerings have stretched across commercial and corporate law, retail and commercial leasing, disputes and litigation, franchising, protecting intellectual property and an advisory on bottom line corporate and franchising functions. This has allowed Charles to earn a reputation of excellence amongst Clients and stakeholders and other professionals (both in and out of the legal industry). Charles’ value add is reflected through his knowledge, experience and dealings with some of Australia’s leading brands. Charles vast experience and with a variety of commercial transactions and contracts, combined with his background in litigation and dispute resolution, allows him to see the ‘bigger picture’ in the ‘long run’ and adopt an approach that is both legal and commercial and 100% unique.
Being acutely aware of the commerciality of deals, Charles prides himself on providing advice that is not only legal, but, commercial.
