Novack and Macey LLP knows how to secure favorable results when relationships between franchisors and franchisees break down.

With the increasing complexity of franchising models, these disputes have become more common.

Our wide range of experience handling disputes arising from the franchisor-franchisee relationship includes disputes involving:

  • Sale or termination of a franchise
  • Non-compete provisions
  • Breach of contractual obligations
  • Fraud and misconduct
  • Territorial encroachment
  • Trademarks and copyrights

We also counsel clients in claims that involve both franchisors and franchisees, including vicarious liability and employment issues.

Businesses facing franchise disputes also appreciate our deep experience with arbitration and mediation. We regularly try cases in arbitration settings under the rules and practices of various arbitration authorities, such as the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution and the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution.
