  • 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.
