Franchise Arbitrations

What We Do

Franchise Arbitration

We represent parties in all aspects of Franchise Arbitrations, including the following:

  • Assessing and advising on enforceability of arbitration clause
  • Conducting an initial assessment of the case, issues, facts, evidence and applicable law and formulating the theory of the case
  • Drafting arbitration pleadings, where applicable
  • Representing parties to all arbitration steps, including final hearing
  • Representing parties on appeals from arbitration awards

Important Cases

We have acted as counsel in the following innovative and precedent-setting Ontario case relating to Franchise Arbitrations:

  1. Full Case Name: Adlakha v. Meehan (2011)

    This court decision is among the few Ontario court decisions relating to the enforceability of an arbitration requirement in a franchise agreement. It is the first decision holding that a franchisor’s affiliates, which are not parties to the franchise agreement, may be required to submit to arbitration together with the franchisor – even though they are technically not direct parties to the arbitration agreement.
