Franchising is a vital
part of New York’s business landscape. Increasing numbers of business
lawyers are facing franchising matters not only for the first time but
on an ongoing basis. Many franchisors are headquartered in our state,
and hundreds more have a presence in New
York through franchised or
company-owned outlets. Investors are increasingly attracted to the
growth potential of franchise companies. Many individuals and companies
view their roles as franchise owners and developers as the best way to
run and grow their own businesses.
Franchise law is interesting
and challenging because it spans a number of legal disciplines,
including contracts, corporate, intellectual property, trade regulation,
licensing and distribution, real estate and litigation. Franchise law is
of special interest now as franchisors transition to the new Federal
Trade Commission rule on franchising. This updated version of our
traditionally popular program is designed for those practitioners who do
not practice franchise law on a regular basis, for those who are new to
franchising and for those who seek an overview of franchise law and the
new disclosure requirements.
This program highlights
those issues and areas of franchise law with which the non-franchise
lawyer should be familiar. The faculty members are highly experienced
franchise law practitioners who provide valuable insight into the
changing law and practice in this burgeoning field.
