NSW Roundtable 7/3/2017

Franchise Disputes

The ability of a franchisor to successfully deal with franchise disputes can determine the success or failure of that franchise system.  A successful resolution of a dispute can reduce costs, save management time and increase morale in the network.  Ongoing, unresolved or bitter disputes can dramatically increase costs, drain management time and greatly affect the ability of the franchisor to recruit franchisees.

This roundtable will discuss the key steps to avoid disputes, and how to efficiently and effectively resolve franchise disputes if they arise.  A focus of the roundtable will be on the internal processes and systems franchisors should develop to reduce and resolve franchise disputes.

This will be an invaluable resource for senior managers and operational teams within franchise organisations, as well as in house counsel and general managers who deal with franchise disputes.
