Ever wonder why there are so many unhappy lawyers? The best bit is at 7:37.
“Stringing a case out”.
- Wondered why everyone says: “Better talk to a lawyer specializing in franchise law?“
- Because you do not know if you have a good case [law services are a credence good] you can easily be convinced that there is no hope or, taken on as a client until your cash flow ends and then discarded.
The Franchise Bar controls access to the Courts and routinely sabotages perfectly good cases. This is especially true in the smaller markets such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand. I have seen it dozens of times.
- The law has been bought and paid for by Big Franchising but this is not such an unusual situation in public administration.
Franchisees who want to sue their franchisor will likely never see the inside of a Court. You should go to a civil court and find out how much of a joke it is. I love the law but dislike the practice of law very much.
- There is no excuse for looking to the law for help: Franchisees and ex-Ees need to rely on themselves.
