Importance of Legal Counselling Within the Pet Industry

As a pet-centered business,  you may wish you had access to a lawyer who knows about the industry, someone who understands particular rules and regulations and the various loopholes that can affect the business decisions you make.  When PIJAC Canada asked members about what their biggest legal concerns were businesses shared their feedback:

PIJAC Canada member, Daniel Walker of Bobila Walker Law approached the association to offer fellow members benefit from reduced rates on legal services and a free 45-minute consultation.  Daniel created has created a niche service for pet industry businesses which provides legal services to meet the unique needs and challenges faced by business in the pet sector. This includes:

  • – Business structure
  • – Contracts
  • – Internal complaints, investigations, and discipline proceedings
  • – Act for franchisees, franchisors, licensees and licensors
  • – Commercial lease and the renewal of such leases
  • – Employment Agreements
  • – Trademarks and brand protection
  • – Federal, provincial and municipal legislation
  • – Consumer complaints

All PIJAC Canada members, regardless of province, have the option to use this service. French language services are offered through referral.
