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.

I felt really safe knowing you [Daniel Hynes] were looking after my interests. I felt like you had my back. You were very professional, kind and caring, and I was very happy with how you handled everything.  –G.A.

Siskinds is a well known law firm that delivers results! I had a challenging issue that Dagmara Wozniak met head on with creative and solution based ideas. She provided a solution in a short amount of time and I would highly recommend her! No one likes legal issues and yet they happen. If you need results ... call Siskinds. - S.F.

Siskinds was very good when I needed them! We were going through a very difficult time. Mr. [Jim] Virtue and Siskinds were very helpful. I had suffered an injury, and during the proceedings my husband was diagnosed with cancer. It was a very overwhelming period for us. Siskinds was very understanding and we were appreciative of the outcome. - S.M.
