This week a federal judge granted my client’s motion to compel arbitration against franchisor Planet Beach. In the past I have typically represented franchisors, not franchisees. But I was contacted by an attorney in New York who asked me to handle the matter as local counsel. I had no conflict of interest, and I thought the client had a good case, so I took the representation.
Now that the case goes to arbitration my representation ends, and some of my attention can be redirected to my other cases.
