Resolving Royalty Disputes
At the core of many franchise disputes is unprofitability at the franchisee
level, if not the franchisor level, and in many cases, a positive cash
flow would resolve most issues. A franchisee who is not paying their royalties
may not be obstinate, but they may have a significant cash flow problem.
Until the franchisor and franchisee go beyond the surface issue of the
royalty default and find the reasons for the defaults, the situation can
continue indefinitely. Thus, it is in both parties' best interests
to address the underlying reason for the problem so they can resolve it
in a proactive business manner.
Using Proactive Legal Strategies to Address Disputes
In franchising, taking a proactive approach to addressing disputes is practical
because it saves time, money, and energy that can be redirected toward
profitability. Early intervention leads to smaller problems, and since
franchising is driven by relationships, problems tend to worsen if they
are left untreated.
Many franchise agreements state that if a face-to-face meeting does not
resolve a dispute, a professional may have to be brought in. Dispute resolution
is an excellent way to work through a problem, with the goal of reaching
a settlement as affordably and amicably as possible.
