The franchising field is unique. Franchisees frequently join forces to resolve disputes with franchisors or suppliers. Being organized in this manner allows franchisees to press or resolve claims that they could not do on their own in a cost-effective manner. At Einbinder & Dunn, LLP, we represent groups and associations of franchisees in negotiating with and filing claims against franchisors. Our New York law firm has established a reputation for successful results in a broad spectrum of franchise litigation and dispute resolution. Many of these issues arise when a franchisor is going out of business or changing the nature of the business:
- Ceasing operation in the United States
- Changing the product sold
- Changing the services offered
- Making significant changes to the pricing structure
- Requiring the sale of products or services that do not make sense in your geographical area
The old adage is true: There is power in numbers. Taking legal action in a large group gives franchisees a significant advantage. At the New York law offices of Einbinder & Dunn, LLP, we are well prepared for the challenge of pursuing these claims successfully. Our law firm is nationally recognized for its work in the area of franchise law. Over the years, we have established a record of successful results.
As experienced lawyers, we also know that group or association claims are not for novices. Franchisees face many special requirements in order to be successful. For example, franchise agreements almost always require that franchisees must litigate in the franchisor's forum, which is usually where the franchise headquarters are located. This can be financially challenging for individual franchisees who are unable to bear the cost of extensive travel and time away from home.
In negotiating with franchisors or engaging in mediation, arbitration or litigation, our experience and knowledge make it more likely that we can reach cost-effective solutions.
