Termination / Liquidated Damage Claim Negotiation Assistance



The flag chosen to represent your hotel may not be delivering everything you had hoped or perhaps your property defaulted on your franchise agreement and was terminated. Either way, we can help you negotiate and reduce the amount of liquidated damages you may owe to a franchise company. We will negotiate termination arrangements that are fair, saving you time and money. We are the leaders in franchise negotiations with all the major brands. 

New Franchise Agreement Negotiation



The franchise company knows more about its franchise philosophies, branding and its franchise system than does the hotel owner with whom it is in negotiations with. We can help put the property owner on equal footing with the franchise company and brand in negotiating the best possible franchise agreement. No matter what your level of expertise in the areas of franchising, we can help.
