A company, large or small, encounters a wide range of contractual issues and we are prepared to assist you in handling them. Some contractual disputes that may arise include:

  • Sales commissions claim. All amounts due to a sales representative, manufacturer’s representative, manager, executive or other employee paid by commission must occur according to the terms of the employment contract.

Franchisor and franchisee issues

If you are considering purchasing a franchise or you are involved in a dispute with your franchisor, it is imperative to obtain competent legal advice. You should never assume you have rights that are not outlined in the franchise agreement. It is also important to consider your exit strategy when the franchise relationship is over. Finally, most franchisors require that you sign a guaranty agreement, so you must be careful in what you guarantee and are personally liable to repay.
