Franchise Litigation

The attorneys at St. Denis & Davey, P.A. bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to each franchise dispute that a client may encounter. Focusing in particular on the needs of automobile dealerships, boat dealerships, and R.V. dealerships throughout Florida, our franchise litigation attorneys are well prepared to handle disputes between franchisees and franchisors, including issues related to

  • disclosure prior to acquisition
  • pricing
  • misrepresentations
  • franchisor-provided support and training
  • termination agreements
  • transfer rights
  • trademark and other intellectual property disputes
  • encroachment
  • lost future profits following termination of franchise
  • other implied or explicit covenants
  • efforts to change agreements following franchisor mergers or acquisitions.

Given the nature of franchise agreements, we are strong proponents of resolving franchise disputes, whenever possible, through mediation and arbitration. However, our clients' negotiation positions are buttressed by our ability and willingness to go to court or before the administrative judge when that is the best path for the client.

In Florida, franchise litigation matters are governed by both federal and state laws and regulations, as well as by the particular provisions of each unique franchise agreement. The attorneys of St. Denis & Davey, P.A. take pride in their in-depth knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations, their meticulous analysis of the agreements involved in each client's case, and their practical negotiation skills, honed over decades of combined experience in the area of franchise litigation
