International Franchise Litigation Lawyer in Washington, D.C.
As much as you may hope to avoid them, franchise disputes do occur. If you are involved in a franchise lawsuit, an experienced franchise attorney can help ensure the protection of your rights and best interests.
I am international franchisee attorney Mario L. Herman. For more than 33 years, I have represented potential, current and former franchisees in disputes involving breach of contract, territorial encroachment, violation of non-compete agreements, and other domestic and international franchising issues. While I strive to resolve disputes through alternative methods such as mediation and arbitration, I understand that sometimes litigation is the best and only way to effectively resolve a legal disagreement.
Contact me to discuss your international franchise dispute.
Franchise litigation is an effective dispute resolution method in both domestic and international franchise law. It can help put an end to disputes that otherwise seem irresolvable. While litigation does take more time and can cost significantly more than franchise arbitration or mediation, it leads to a final decision with little room for further conflict. As an experienced franchise attorney, I can help determine whether litigation is the best option for you.
I understand that most franchisees don’t want to get caught up in court, and as a result, I strive to make the process as efficient as possible. I personally represent clients from the beginning of the case to the end, and never hand off tasks to an inexperienced associate.
