We have pursued cases against some the biggest players in the hotel, restaurant and service industries including Holiday Inn, McDonalds, Dunkin’ Donuts, Coca-Cola, Burger King, Papa John’s, 7-Eleven and Pizza Hut.

We possess the skills and experience to represent franchisees and franchise associations in any type of business dispute. ZESB’s franchise litigation experience includes such issues as breach of contract, fraud, UFOC disclosure violations, encroachment, wrongful termination, liquidated damages, failure to renew, unreasonable system-wide changes, and issues related to supply chain sourcing and pricing.
