The Lawyer’s Daily published a three-part series of articles written by Ben Hanuka, with the assistance of Anthony Pugh, associate at Law Works, titled “Franchise law: three important appeal decisions”. In the articles, published in August 2022, Ben analyzed a trio of franchise rescission decisions by the Court of Appeal for Ontario released between October 2021 and June 2022.
The July 2022 issue of our Franchise Law newsletter features articles about three recent decisions of the Court of Appeal for Ontario. In all cases, the franchisor was non-compliant with franchise disclosure legislation and the Court of Appeal upheld the rescission decisions. For added commentary on the the risk of non-compliance, subscribers will be able to download our e-book for franchisors: "Does Your Franchise Disclosure Document Comply with Franchise Legislation?", from the newsletter.
