Nixon Peabody LLP
As a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, Arthur helps franchise clients resolve disputes in the best way for them and their business interests.
Chambers USA has recognized him among the top seven U.S. franchise lawyers for the past five years. According to client feedback, Arthur is “the go-to guy,” a “very good litigator,” “gets things done very efficiently” and is “very knowledgeable.” “His client service is great.”
I focus on solving problems efficiently. My goal is to help clients succeed in their core businesses without unnecessary distraction from disputes with business partners. I am a proponent of mediation as a cost-effective method of identifying interests that can facilitate resolution in ways that courts cannot. That said, I often appear in court or in arbitration on behalf of franchisors and sometimes on behalf of franchisees or distributors with legitimate business complaints that are not easily resolved.
I’ve tried many cases before juries, judges and arbitration panels over my career. I am also a trained mediator and arbitrator listed on the American Arbitration Association neutral panels for franchise and commercial disputes.
