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.
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 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.Read More
