Adrian Etchell

Adrian Etchell

Johns Southward Glazier Walton & Margetts LLP

Adrian Etchell practices business and franchise law in British Columbia. He acts for both franchisors and franchisees and has experience preparing and reviewing franchise agreements and disclosure documents. Before moving back to the coast, Adrian practiced in Alberta at a large, downtown Calgary law firm where he specialized in franchise law. B.C.’s new Franchises Act closely resembles franchise legislation in Alberta that has been in force for decades already. Therefore, Adrian brings his experience working in a regulated franchise jurisdiction to his clients in B.C.
