Jason P. Isralowitz

Jason Isralowitz works with motor vehicle manufacturers and distributors on the intensive legal regulations that govern their business. In his more than 20 years practicing motor vehicle franchise law, Jason has helped franchisors with a range of disputes arising under state law, including terminations, transfers, appointments, discrimination issues, and brand withdrawals and introductions.

Jason regularly counsels franchisors on all aspects of their commercial relationships with authorized dealers. He has guided franchisors with distribution upgrade initiatives, facility and incentive programs, market definitions, appointment standards, and franchise agreement amendments. He also oversees a comprehensive dealer franchise law database on behalf of a major industry group.

Jason has litigated manufacturer/dealer disputes in courts and agencies across the country. He argued a case before the Iowa Supreme Court that established an automobile franchisor's right to apply its customer satisfaction standards to new dealer candidates. Jason also was part of a team that made, on behalf of an automaker, a successful due process challenge to a state administrative body.
