Litigation for Businesses and Franchises
A Boston-based firm that represents business owners and franchisees in court or arbitration
Franchisor legal counsel or your general practice attorney may tell you there is no wiggle room within your franchise contract. This is not necessarily accurate and a defeatist attitude never helps in negotiations or dispute resolution. If you feel you are being mistreated, neglected, or bullied by your franchisor, or you are having trouble communicating with your franchisor when you need to, contact Valas & Associates, P.C. The legal team at Valas & Associates, P.C. draws on focused experience in franchise law and litigation to talk to you about your legal problem. If you have a case, the attorneys let you know and are not afraid to go to arbitration or court if litigation is the best possible or only option.

Vigorous prosecution of all credible claims and defenses
If you have a problem or dispute, you should immediately contact a qualified attorney to assess your situation and determine where you stand. Far too many franchisees lose the right to pursue remedies or to properly defend themselves because they wait.
Your attorney should carefully examine the facts, the law, and the terms of your agreements, and prepare a preliminary analysis or strategic plan. It helps to have attorneys with prior experience with your agreements or issues.
Even if you have no desire to pursue costly litigation or arbitration, it may be best for you and your attorney to conduct a thorough and accurate analysis and presentation of your position and claims. It is the firm's experience that the best settlements result from vigorous prosecution of your position and all credible claims or defenses.
