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.

Specific Areas of Law

Arbitration & Litigation

When a dispute reaches this point, our in-depth understanding of franchise law and all levels of court is essential.

Associations & Advisory Committees

All parties are affected as the business evolves. We can inject clarity and potential courses of action.

Default Termination

As franchise agreements are complex, so are the situations in which the relationship falters. Talk to us.

Mediation

Before moving to more extensive actions, mediation should be considered. It's often the better way.

This is an amazing organization who commits to correct any unfair and hidden provisions from car manufacturers.  It is a great help to customers. - J.L.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.

Siskinds has worked with my company for several years. Best labour lawyers around! I highly recommend them. - B.M.T.
