Franchise Litigation

TLG attorneys have substantial experience representing franchisors, franchisees, area franchisees and others in a variety of lawsuits and disputes, including alleged breach of franchise agreements or sales targets; trademark, trade dress and de-identification issues; claims of misrepresentation and fraud in the sale of franchises; franchisor support and advertising commitments; lease disputes, accounting and royalty issues; separation and wrongful termination claims; antitrust claims, and numerous other matters.

In some cases involving franchise issues, liability insurance is available; the identification of potential coverage and implementation of an insurance strategy is critical to the legal and economic consequences of the litigation. TLG attorneys have extensive experience dealing with the complex insurance issues which arise in franchise cases, and working with clients’ insurers to reimburse expenses and successfully resolve the matter.
