Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Each day franchisors must manage the myriad risks inherent in doing business internationally, nationally, or locally. When disputes arise, many of the nation’s leading franchisors turn to our team of experienced litigators to represent their interests. Our litigators have represented franchisors in courts and arbitration tribunals throughout the U.S. We are experienced in guiding clients through the dispute resolution process, whether it be litigation, arbitration, mediation, court-supervised settlement conferences, or simple negotiation. Our team includes highly experienced trial lawyers, litigation managers, and lawyers with extensive experience handling mediations and arbitrations. Many of our attorneys are included on the Minnesota Supreme Court’s roster of ADR attorneys and the American Arbitration Association’s panel of arbitrators and mediators, as well as similar professional groups.
We have a wealth of knowledge and resources developed over many years of representing franchisors in litigation matters. That depth of knowledge allows us to draw on briefs, pleadings, and strategies that have proven successful in prior cases. We measure our success by the results we get for you. And in many cases getting results means steering clear of litigation. We collaborate with our clients to identify and execute the most advantageous business-oriented solutions, either by pursuing or defending litigation or arbitration proceedings, or through alternative methods, such as mediation.
