Assisted with resolution of business dispute between global oil company and its largest franchisee

Pipes Oil and Gas

CRA Forensic Services expert Kristofer Swanson was retained by Quinn Emanuel to help resolve a business dispute between a global oil company and its largest franchisee of automotive maintenance and quick lube services. In support of an Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution arbitration proceeding, Mr. Swanson investigated a variety of allegations, including the franchisee’s alleged failure to meet contractual operating and credit performance requirements, and the oil company’s allegations of damages arising from the closure of certain stores as the franchisee rebalanced its geographic footprint in response to changes in the market. Mr. Swanson issued two expert reports and one rebuttal report, and testified at the arbitration proceeding.

CRA Forensic Services Consultants Jordan Kraner and Rachel Ott provided invaluable support on behalf of this engagement.
