Disputes can occur when a franchisor enters into an agreement with a franchisee, which subsequently turns out to be lacking in points of key importance.
Typical problems include failure to support the franchisee, lack of minimum sales turnover, lack of stock, unrealistic expectations, and lack of quality.
Franchise terms and conditions are usually contained in a detailed agreement, but this may fail to include a number of critical factors upon which the franchisee relies.
The ideal settlement would, of course, be reached by way of an amicable agreement. Where this is unsuccessful, or impossible, a solution might be sought through arbitration, mediation or ultimately litigation in the courts. In many cases, this litigation can be undertaken on a no-win, no-fee basis.
