Litigation & Disputes
Disputes between manufacturers and their dealers, and between franchisors and franchisees, often erupt into high-stakes lawsuits. For more than 25 years, our attorneys have regularly and successfully represented their clients in hundreds of these disputes, from injunction and TRO proceedings contesting relationship terminations to full-blown jury trials with millions of dollars at stake.
Franchise and dealership relations are also frequently affected by the provisions of state laws, sometimes industry-specific, and sometimes applying generally to all relationships that qualify as dealerships or franchises. Our extensive experience with these statutes enables us to get right to the merits without having to get up to speed on the quirks of local law. We regularly counsel, teach, and write on areas of franchise, dealership, and distribution law and our attorneys in this areas are retained nationally to service our firm’s clients.
