International Expansion: Master Franchising and Other Structures

Presented by: Rick Morey, Partner, DLA Piper US LLP and Tao Xu, Partner, DLA Piper US LLP

When does master franchising make sense? For the franchisor? For the franchisee? What are the pros and cons for each? How does it operate? What are the rights and responsibilities of each party? How do you analyze the economics? How does the franchisor find and select a master franchise partner, and how can a candidate satisfy himself as to the franchisor? What are the principal negotiating points? What are the principal pitfalls, and how can they be avoided? Finally, how are all of these issues handled differently in the international context? This workshop will address these challenging issues and draw upon the diverse experience of our panelists, all veterans of franchising. Click here for more details.
