Mediation

We understand commercial disputes – particularly landlord and franchise disputes. Whether as a franchisor or franchisee, with our advice and support we will ensure you obtain the very best outcome possible when confronted with a commercial dispute.

Mediation of commercial disputes is an essential step before commencing litigation. A successful mediation can save you thousands in unnecessary court costs and can also allow you to obtain a better perspective on the causes of conflict that can reduce the likelihood of such a dispute reoccurring in the future. Whether as a franchisor or franchisee, it is imperative that franchise disputes are treated expeditiously and that you obtain the very best legal advice to avoid the dispute escalating and resulting in unnecessary and expensive litigation costs.

When dealing with a dispute, you need an experienced, trusted advisor by your side. It is also crucial that you work with a specialised franchise lawyer when conducting mediation as a franchisor or franchisee, as they will understand the constraints and regulations around franchising, and will be able to effectively take these into account.

Our legal team has extensive experience dealing with franchise disputes. We know when to litigate and when to settle. We also know how disputes play out, given that we have advised many clients on these issues for well over 15 years. As a franchise specialist law firm, we understand the importance of dealing with franchise disputes proactively. We can take you through all the options and ensure you understand the process and the possible outcomes.

If you are a franchisor or a franchisee, and are facing a commercial dispute, our specialist team of franchise lawyers can help you get the most out of the mediation process. We will work with you to achieve a satisfactory result, preventing litigation where possible. We recommend you call us today to discuss how we can help you.
