Franchise Disputes

We understand the key buttons to press on both sides for franchisors and franchisees, both BFA affiliated and non-affiliated to get you to a quicker and cost-effective solution, so you can get back to your business.

 Whether you're a globally established franchisor or a new start-up franchisee, we’ll help you through your dispute.

Our recent experience includes:

Negotiating favourable settlements for more than 10 individual UK franchisees, most under the threat of termination, with their large US franchisor - we softened the franchisor's initial aggressive position by running a prolonged PR campaign, ultimately causing the franchisor to compromise

Representing a global franchisor in its delicate discussions with its largest global franchisee, which has an exclusive right to trade in the Far East

We know that the law is only one tool to get our franchise clients the right deal. That's why we work out what you want to achieve first and then devise a plan based on the options available to you.

We’re passionate about providing the right solutions and driven to make a positive difference in everything we do.
