Tactics used to drag out litigation?

Over the years I have had many a franchisee in litigation complain to me about tactics used by the franchisor’s lawyers to drag out litigation to the point where the franchisees could no longer afford representation.

I believe BMM has the audience to compile a list of those tactics. While this may be ‘bread and butter’ material for the lawyers, it might be helpful for franchisees to know what they have to be prepared for.

Your comments would be appreciated.
