Having Problems with Your Franchisor?
Buying and operating a franchise requires a substantial investment of time
and money. Sometimes things go wrong and threaten this investment. If
they do, and you end up in a dispute with your franchisor, we can help.
Most franchisors do not want to litigate with its franchisees but sometimes
disagreements occur and if they do you can bet your franchisor has the
contractual language on its side. And, your franchisor probably has franchise
legal representation as well. So, in order to have a fighting chance at
an acceptable resolution you should have an experienced franchise lawyer
on your side.
