Leading Canadian
FRANCHISE & BUSINESS LAW FIRM

What is unique about Law Works?

Focus:

Law Works P.C. is one of Ontario’s select few regional boutiques focused on franchise and business disputes.

We advise parties at all levels of franchising, from large and sophisticated systems, all the way to small local business owners. We represent international and Canadian franchisors, master franchisees, multi-unit franchisees and local single unit franchisees.

Depth:

Law Works’ principal lawyer, Ben Hanuka, specializes in franchise litigation: pursuing, defending and resolving franchise disputes, on behalf of franchisors and franchisees.

Ben is one of only a handful Ontario litigators with a recognized franchise specialty practice that predates Ontario’s franchise legislation, enacted in 2000. His first reported franchise case was in 2003, among the earliest reported franchise disclosure decisions. In 2005, Ben launched the first Ontario franchise disclosure class action, which was extensively covered in the media.

To date, Ben has since acted as counsel in some of the leading franchise court decisions which continue to influence the interpretation of aspects of franchise law by Ontario courts and lawyers.

Breadth:

In addition to the food and restaurants industry, we have developed expertise in niche industries such as retailing, hotels and hospitality, pharmaceutics and real estate brokerages.

Reach:

We have branch offices from Waterloo, to the Greater Toronto Area, to Ottawa. The local communities in which we operate are important to us. As we grow across Ontario to better serve our clients, we seek to strengthen our relationship with those local communities.

Our professional staff adhere to the highest standards of competency and service.
