A short video introduction to Dan MacKeigan, Member of Siskinds Commercial Litigation Law Group.
Our Franchise, Licensing & Distribution Law group counsels franchisors, distributors and manufacturers regarding risk management policies and procedures to reduce potential liability, and our lawyers work with clients to create business solutions to resolve disputes short of costly litigation.
Since litigation can not always be avoided, our group includes lawyers with substantial experience and expertise in franchise, licensing, and distribution litigation and dispute resolution. Our lawyers are prepared to protect and defend the rights and assets of clients in Ontario and throughout Canada, and with the use of local agents, anywhere in the world. Since its inception in the 19th Century, the firm has been regarded as a premier civil litigation law firm. A portion of the firm's extensive litigation practice is devoted to the specialized representation of franchisors, licensors, and distributors.
Our lawyers have successfully handled a wide variety of franchise and distribution disputes, including claims for wrongful termination, breach of contract, tortious interference, fraud and misrepresentation, fraudulent earnings claims, encroachment, unfair competition, trademark infringement, breach of confidentiality covenant, and breach of non-compete covenants. We also serve as national, regional, or Ontario counsel for certain clients, either supervising local counsel, acting as local counsel, or otherwise coordinating and overseeing the representation of many types of civil disputes.
We also regularly engage in the full range of alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including arbitration and mediation, that are frequently used by franchisors and distributors to resolve disputes within their systems. Members of the team have broad experience in franchise-related arbitration, and have served on arbitration panels for the arbitration of distribution and franchise disputes.
Moving Forward. We look forward to working together with you to start, expand or re-structure your system, or to solve whatever problem or seize whatever opportunity you're dealing with, anywhere.
