Like any business contract, disputes can arise. Especially as a franchise agreement is complex contract that can last for a considerable period and effect a large number of people. Often these contracts can set out a strict set of policies and procedures in order to conduct business. Should a dispute occur, our dispute resolution team are on hand to provide an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and set out your options moving forward. We will strive to protect your interests while reaching a cost-effective solution.
Franchise disputes can include:
Our intent is always to settle matters by negotiation or, if the parties agree, by mediation. Where that has failed, we have instituted High Court proceedings on behalf of both franchisors (in respect of the enforcement of non-competition clauses) and franchisees (in respect of damages for breach of contract and misrepresentation).
Speak to our franchise disputes solicitors today if you feel you have a claim against your franchisee or franchisor.
