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 have experienced the relief every day since [we finished the matter]. Again, a big Thank You [Madison Goodacre] for getting this, most importantly done, but also quickly and professionally. - S.P.

Victoria [Edwards] and associates did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend your firm and Victoria. She explained all the details to perfection and very professionally. The satisfactory conclusion for this file speaks for itself. Thank you Victoria. You are the best! - J.I.

I want to thank Andrea [Cooley] so much for all her care, concern, work, expertise and wisdom that she gave over the last few months. A separation is something I did not really want to go through, but with Andrea's help I am thankful that I was able to get it all figured out and finished up. I am very happy that it is done, and I can move forward. - L.D.
