We work alongside franchisors on management policies and procedures to mitigate risk of potential liability, as well as create business solutions to resolve disputes.
While we offer expert litigation assistance in the areas of franchising, licensing, and distribution, we also appreciate that differences can sometimes be settled through alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and/or arbitration.
We have successfully handled a wide variety of franchise and distribution disputes, including claims for wrongful termination, breach of contract, tortious interference, fraud and misrepresentation, fraudulent earnings claims, encroachment, unfair competition, trademark infringement, breach of confidentiality covenant, and breach of non-compete covenants.
We also serve as national, regional, or Ontario counsel for certain clients, either supervising local counsel, acting as local counsel, or otherwise coordinating and overseeing the representation of many types of civil disputes.
