Speaker

Andrew Seid Consultant - MSA Worldwide

Andrew is a consultant for MSA Worldwide, a domestic and international franchise advisory firm. While an experienced litigator and a transactional lawyer in franchising, Andrew is the son of our founder and franchising has been part of his life-long experience starting when he attended his first IFA convention at the age of ten.

Andrew earned his BA in business from Franklin & Marshall and his JD from Villanova University School of Law. Starting in high school and continuing through college and law school, Andrew has worked with MSA clients in the design of franchise systems, competitive research, mergers and acquisitions, and franchise sales. He interned at the IFA working closely with many of the leading figures in franchising, as well as gaining experience as an intern with several well-known franchise law firms. His academic background in labor and employment law and his legal foundation in franchising, when coupled with his business and consulting experience, brings a unique dynamic our clients can rely upon.

While as a consultant Andrew is no longer practicing law, he is a member of the bar in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Connecticut and practiced as a litigator until he joined MSA as a consultant. MSA does not provide any legal advice or services for our clients as we are not a law firm; however, Andrew remains active and continues his participation at ABA and IFA legal symposiums. This gives him the capacity to review the legal documents prepared by our client’s outside lawyers from a perspective that provides significant benefits to our clients.

In addition to his other client services at MSA, Andrew works on MSA’s emerging franchisor sales incubator team, which assists clients in both developing their pipeline of potential franchisees and also trains franchisors how to internalize the Franchise Sales Process.

Andrew is in the process of completing the requirements for earning his Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) accreditation from the IFA Educati
