Dispute Resolution

  • Consult with a Franchise Law Attorney

    Not sure where to start? The franchise attorneys at Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes can review your business plan and provide legal guidance based on your current situation and your long term goals.

    If you have any questions regarding the best course of action, please request a franchise consultation with one of our attorneys.

Franchise Litigation, Arbitration, Mediation and Other Dispute Resolution

While we may strive to limit your risks of litigation, disputes between a franchisor and franchisee are bound to occur. Our franchise attorneys provide advice to help navigate and mitigate disputes before they become serious. When disagreements go unsettled, our skilled litigators can give franchisors unparalleled representation in mediation and arbitration, as well as litigation proceedings in state and federal courts.

We have experience in resolving and litigating issues related to defaults and termination, enforcement of non-compete agreements, protection of confidential information and trade secrets, injunctive relief, implied covenants of good faith and fair dealing, violations of franchise laws, enforcement of franchise agreement terms, vicarious liability, unfair competition, antitrust, and trademark infringement. We represent franchisors in disputes with current and former franchisees, including the enforcement of post-termination obligations. Dispute resolution requires careful strategy and adherence to a complex set of rules and procedures. As a result, it is essential that you choose an attorney who has a proven track record of providing successful representation.

Disputes between franchisors and franchisees can jeopardize the entire franchise system. Our experienced litigation attorneys can help guide you, litigating assertively where necessary, while keeping your business objectives and brand image a priority.
