We have represented many franchisee associations (and groups of franchisees). We have formed associations and guided them through their day-to-day activities. We have negotiated with the association’s franchiser and where necessary, engaged in arbitration or litigation on behalf of the association and its members.
We will form your association after discussing the type of entity that best suits your needs with your leadership group. We will prepare bylaws for the association and help you formulate the programs and agendas that will meet the requirements of your group. If warranted, we will review your existing franchise agreement (or new and amended franchise agreement) and negotiate potential modifications with the franchiser. If you have other issues with your franchiser, we can negotiate them as well. If the issues cannot be resolved through negotiation, we can engage in mediation, arbitration or litigation, as appropriate.
