Franchise

As part of its commercial litigation practice, MDM&C handles a substantial amount of franchise litigation on behalf of franchisors nationally. Aside from general contract dispute arising out of the franchise relationship, our litigators have represented franchisors in termination actions, as well as in cases involving the enforcement of rights of first refusal, in both state and federal courts. In addition, we have handled actions for the recovery of licensing fees and to enjoin trademark infringements by former franchisees. We have also represented the interests of franchisors in bankruptcies filed by franchisees. We also seek efficient results by resolving franchise and other disputes before they are brought to trial through alternative dispute resolution.
