We have addressed some of the legal challenges that auto dealerships face, such as disputes with staff members or customers. Sometimes, however, litigation can involve a manufacturer and these cases can be especially difficult. As a result, it may be in the best interests of your business to avoid litigation, which may be possible by carefully discussing the issue(s) with a manufacturer. Ideally, these disagreements can be resolved without heading to court and taking on the stressors associated with litigation. After all, lawsuits can be difficult from a financial standpoint and in terms of time lost, both for manufacturers and car dealerships alike.
Unfortunately, talking about these issues with a manufacturer is not always possible and it does not always resolve the matter. Sometimes, litigation is inevitable and a car dealership may be very stressed out about the thought of going to court against a manufacturer who may have more resources. Moreover, you may decide to sue a manufacturer. If you are in this position, you should not feel hopeless. Rather, you should try to review any options or strategies that can help improve your circumstances and increase the chances of a favorable court ruling.
Make sure that the case is reviewed carefully and be prepared to put your best foot forward in court. You may also find value in turning to a legal professional who has handled these matters previously. After all, this is a unique area of law and each case requires a different approach. Our auto dealership law covers more related to manufacturer lawsuits.
