Our franchise litigation lawyers counsel Canadian franchisors and franchisees. It requires a firm knowledge of the unique challenges of franchisors, especially during litigation of franchise disputes, and the ability to successful outcomes in all sizes and shapes of litigation issues. As a principal firm in Canada, FrancisLawyers provides the expertise and skills required for all of its franchisor and franchisee clients.
New franchise legislation in several Canadian provinces has altered the dynamic of the relationship between franchisor and franchisee. Our firm’s expertise is in navigating the complex statutes that often seem geared toward the franchisee.
We work hand in hand with our firm’s franchise and distribution lawyers to provide our clients with a full range of services. It is our goal to avoid disputes and litigation. We are able to manage the legal needs of clients from the initial decision of operating a franchise in Canada through any litigation that may arise.
