Franchising offers tremendous benefits to both parties involved. For larger companies, it provides a logistically feasible way for their product to reach a wider audience. And for the franchisee, it provides an individual the opportunity to run a business under the name and guidance of a successful brand. While this is a relatively symbiotic venture, like any business relationship, disagreements do occur.
Our team of Houston franchise dispute attorneys at Williams Hart & Boundas understands that you have a lot at stake in the event of a franchise dispute, whether it is your livelihood, your brand, or both. We represent both franchisees and franchisers to protect their positions through an agreement dispute in Houston and will take swift, aggressive action when necessary to enforce that agreement.
Common Points of Contention
Our Houston legal team has found that the most common problems that result in legal action faced by franchisees or franchisers often include one or more of the following:
- Assessment of rights
- Non-disclosure or misrepresentation claims
- Noncompliance with franchise agreement
- Unfair or deceptive trade practices
