When litigation or arbitration with a franchisee cannot be avoided, we at the Franchise Law Source provide aggressive defense of your franchise company. We represent clients in jurisdictions nationwide with affiliated counsel where necessary.

Preparing a case for trial and trying the matter to a verdict is less common than it used to be in commercial disputes because of the high cost of litigation. We, of course, counsel our clients to avoid and resolve disputes where feasible. However, our experience in high stakes commercial litigation has made it clear over the years that franchisors must be willing to try cases where necessary.

Business Litigation Requires Business Knowledge
Our background in franchise company operations and finance, budgeting and financial reporting distinguishes the Franchise Law Source from many big law firm attorneys. Scott Kern spent almost twenty years as an officer of large corporations and had responsibility for general management of business operations including Carvel Corporation’s 400-plus stores franchise chain and administrative departments. You can tap that experience by engaging our services to defend against franchisee claims.

Prejudgment Remedies, Injunctions, Class Actions and Complex Multiparty Litigation
We have successfully defended franchisors in complex actions involving large numbers of franchisees and in actions by individual franchisees. We have defended successfully against franchisee class actions and are right at home taking the offensive seeking injunctions and prejudgment remedies for franchisors.

Immediate Action for Long Term Success
Do not wait to engage counsel experienced in franchisee disputes. If you have been sued or believe that you may be, contact us. Early planning of litigation strategy and tactics is important. Communication to claimants, potential claimants and even to loyal franchisees must be carefully handled. Our years of experience in franchise litigation and franchise company management can clarify your problems and the solutions.
