Franchise Litigation

In all franchise companies, there will be a small percentage of franchisees who repeated fail to comply with the Franchise Agreement and/or Franchise Manuals. Franchisors who ‘do nothing’, run the risk of these franchisees encouraging indiscipline within the franchise chain or worst, conducting their business in a way which compromises on brand quality and consistency.

We have acted for numerous franchisors in terminating and litigating against franchisees who are in breach, resulting in favorable outcomes for the franchisor. The court proceeding or arbitration usually involve seeking on order for recovery of unpaid monies, closure of outlet and return of items bearing the intellectual property of the franchisors (like signage, stationeries, menu’s , etc).
