Franchise Disputes

The Lanier Ford franchise attorneys can help you resolve your franchise dispute to your satisfaction. Franchise agreements are lengthy, sophisticated, and complex contracts that typically last for many years. Because of the long-term commercial relationship between franchisors and franchisees, franchise disputes frequently arise.

If you are a franchisor, you want to protect your brand, your ideas, your intellectual property, and the good name you have worked hard to build. If you are a franchisee, you want to make sure you are getting the training, assistance, and value that you paid for.

When a franchise fails, there is an inevitable conflict between the franchisor and franchisees that can often result in claims between the parties. Typical claims are that—

  • The franchisor has not complied with its obligations under the franchise agreement.
  • The franchisor made misrepresentations to induce the franchisee to buy the franchise.
  • The franchisee mismanaged the franchise.
  • The franchisee failed to heed the advice and follow the system provided by the franchisor.

Lanier Ford’s lawyers have experience in and can help franchisors and franchisees resolve their disputes through commercial solutions, mediation, arbitration, or, if all else fails, litigation.
