Led by a former Superior Court judge, this dynamic legal team knows the inside of a courtroom from every angle.

Franchise & Hospitality Law

Attorneys at The Federal Firm have extensive experience and special expertise in handling disputes between franchisors and franchisees, with specific emphasis in hotel and restaurant operations. Litigation issues have included franchise contract disputes, premises security, assaults on hotel and event patrons, personal injuries, drownings in hotel pools, other death and injury claims as the result of fires and insurance coverage issues. Other relevant areas of expertise include: management contracts, wrongful termination, employment law, labor issues, franchise agreements, hotel/ motel security, sexual harassment, and customer service claims.

The best negotiators are those who can quickly and accurately assess risks and liability, and resolve Clients' disputes with others efficiently and effectively. When disputes involving franchisors and franchisees arise, the attorneys at The Federal Firm first attempt to resolve their disputes through direct negotiation with the adverse party, whenever possible, and through alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation. However, they are always prepared to go to trial and to litigate if and when necessary.

The Franchise and Hospitality dispute resolution team for The Federal Firm includes Mort Aronson, former General Counsel for Intercontinental Hotels, R. Keegan Federal, Jr., Julie Fleming-Brown, and Mike O'Neill.

Mediation & Arbitration

More often than not, we can negotiate a settlement that's satisfactory to both sides. We strongly recommend our clients first consider voluntary mediation with a qualified, neutral, third-party or binding arbitration.
