Don't be left behind! This spring's dinner meeting will arm you with everything you need to know about this year's hottest franchise class action decision, Fairview Donut Inc. and Brule Foods Ltd. v. The TDL Group Corp. and Tim Hortons Inc. Our panel of experienced franchise practitioners will ensure you leave the event with an understanding of the latest key legal developments arising from Justice Strathy's 2012 certification and summary judgment decision, and how to translate those developments into best practices, including:

  • the rights of franchisors and franchisees with respect to substantial changes to the franchise system and the implementation of those changes;
  • the interaction between the terms of franchise agreements and the obligation of fair dealing under the Arthur Wishart Act (Franchise Disclosure), 2000;
  • the limits on a franchisee's right to profit through the supply and pricing of products;
  • how to manage ongoing franchisee/franchisor business relationships in a network under the strain of long-term litigation; and
  • the latest word on the application of certification principles in the franchising context.

We bet you dollars to donuts you won't want to miss this one!
