Law Works PC is a business and franchise regional boutique with particular ‎expertise in (i) franchise law, (ii) international and ‎domestic business disputes and arbitration, and (iii) niche industries. ‎

Our firm was founded in 2012. For many years before that time, the firm’s principal, Ben Hanuka, an experienced commercial and franchise litigator, led a successful career in downtown Toronto, at a mid-sized firm, followed by a boutique litigation firm.

Our principal lawyer, Ben Hanuka, is Certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Civil Litigation. He frequently writes, presents and provides commentary to the legal and general media about franchise law, civil litigation, arbitration, the future of the legal profession, and legal technology.

Our firm represent the following types of clients:

  • Franchising: Local, national and international franchisors and master franchisees; multi-unit and regional experienced franchisees located across Ontario, and
  • Corporate/Commercial: Local, regional and international companies, enterprises and business owners involved in commercial and corporate disputes affecting their businesses.

Our Clients and Industry Expertise

In franchising, we advise and represent international and Canadian franchisors, master franchisees and multi-unit franchisees.

The expertise we maintain in franchising extends beyond the law. We have cultivated deep-rooted relationships with multi-disciplinary professionals to further our commitment to our clients’ needs.

Broad and in-depth knowledge of niche industries is one of our many strengths. 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.
