Disputes used to be dangerous for those involved: both individuals fought to defend their honour with a sword or pistol and this type of resolution clearly marked one the winner and the other the untimely loser.
Luckily today, the mitigation of disputes is not life threatening but this does not mean that it goes without potential harm; as any dispute, especially a business one, can impact the livelihood of those involved. Franchise disputes in particular can arise for many reasons: if a franchisee feels they are not receiving value from a franchisor; a franchisee looks at ways of selling products outside the franchise system; when or if a franchise fails.
These are some of the potential disputes that can arise in the franchise system, and despite the sometimes volatile nature of broken trust or economic loss, it is important for both parties to seek resolution over a fight. If a commercial resolution is not possible, nor is mediation, than arbitration or litigation may be the answer.
