In nearly all franchise systems, there is a requirement that the franchisees comply with the policies and procedures of the franchise system. This will include monetary and non-monetary obligations throughout the franchisor/franchisee relationship. Many provinces have enacted legislation to govern the franchisor/franchisee relationship and many of the common elements in the various provincial legislations provide for good faith and fair dealing on the part of both franchisors and franchisees in both the performance and enforcement of franchise agreements.

Whether you are a franchisor seeking to sanction a franchisee for not complying with the policies and procedures of the franchise system, or if you are a franchisee who has been served unfairly with a notice of default or notice of termination, we would be pleased to assist you and guide you through this process. 

We will explore your options and goals and work with you to resolve the problem and achieve the best possible result, which may involve taking steps to restore the relationship or, where appropriate, to effect a separation of the business relationship. Most franchise agreements contain obligations that survive termination and we are often consulted by franchisors and franchisees to ensure that the post-termination obligations are fulfilled.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

Maciek [Piekosz] has been a great help and very accommodating since day one. He relays information in an understandable and clear manner. All correspondence with both him as well as other Siskinds personnel has been nothing but smooth and attentive. Thank you. - M.D.
