Franchise Disputes

A franchise can offer a lucrative business opportunity to small business owners. Often, the franchisee can rely upon the franchisor for structure, branding, name recognition, marketing, vendor negotiations and support services. However, when the franchisor fails to abide by the agreement or imposes unreasonable obligations on the franchisee, the strained relationship can jeopardize the profitability or viability of the franchisee’s business. Our lawyers protect your rights under the contract you made with the franchisor.

Commercial Disputes

Large corporations often have a team of aggressive attorneys who can pressure unrepresented small businesses and individuals to accept unjust resolutions. Our law firm takes on big corporations that attempt to squeeze smaller businesses. Our clients include franchisees, contractors, subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and other businesses with claims involving unfair business terms or breach of contract. We advocate for your rights.
