Franchisor & Franchisee Litigation Attorneys

Franchising is a win-win on paper, but the relationship between franchisors and franchisees is often fraught with conflict. Miller Shah LLP has extensive experience representing both parties in franchise transactions and franchise disputes. We have represented clients in both individual lawsuits and class actions, providing plaintiff and defense counsel.

Our law firm can address franchising litigation in state and federal venues, as we have multiple offices around the United States and extensive experience in numerous federal court districts. Most typically, we represent franchisors who have been defrauded or sued by franchisees on various grounds, but we have also represented franchisees in breach of contract lawsuits and other claims.

Extensive Experience In Franchise Disputes

Miller Shah can address a wide range of franchise-related legal conflicts that may arise, such as:

  • Competition from the franchisor
  • Encroachment of other franchisees
  • Franchise fee disputes
  • Franchise termination or non-renewal
  • Franchise transfers
  • Inadequate support (training, advertising)
  • Misuse of trademarks and trade dress
  • Nondisclosure or misrepresentations
  • Oppressive rules and restrictions
  • Required purchases of equipment or inventory

Many disputes are amenable to mediation or arbitration, but if the relationship has become increasingly adversarial, you may need a lawyer with experience in franchisor and franchisee litigation.
