What do you focus on?
I focus a substantial part of my practice on outbound and inbound international franchise transactions. I have worked on hundreds of international franchise transactions in more than 85 countries, from Mongolia to Qatar and from South Africa to Macau. I co-authored and co-edited a book called International Franchise Sales Laws, published by the American Bar Association, which is the definitive work on the topic.
I represent clients in protecting their intellectual property—such as trade secret information and trademarks—and in all aspects of protecting their franchise system.
I speak and write frequently for the American Bar Association’s Forum Committee on Franchising, the International Bar Association International Franchising Committee, the International Franchise Association and others. I enjoy the intellectual rigor of writing and speaking—as well as the social aspects and travel of the many industry events.
I am currently Chair of the International Franchising Committee of the International Bar Association and am a member of the Governing Committee of the American Bar Association’s Forum on Franchising.
