Join Harris J. Chernow, Chair of Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s national Franchise & Distribution Practice Group, for this in-depth presentation providing attendees with the skills they need to confidently handle franchise related matters in your practice. While the number of franchises nationwide continues to increase steadily, a number of New Jersey businesses and individuals are seeking attorneys who handle a wide range of specific legal services related to these special business agreements.

Harris and his co-presenter will explore some of the unique aspects of franchise law, such as: what is a franchise - and is it right for you or your clients? What are the advantages and disadvantages of being involved with a franchise system? What trademark and intellectual property protection issues should you understand before counseling your client? What are the key legal issues you need to be aware of, and that must be considered when handling franchise matters, including dispute resolution topics?
