The Forum, as always, will handle American and International issues related to franchising. This year the Forum will, also, have a workshop covering the basics of franchise law for newcomers to franchise law.
The Annual Meeting of the Forum on Franchising is a must for all international franchise professionals and is a great tool for those interested in entering this dynamic area of law.
