Selling Franchises Internationally Without Getting Into Trouble

Room: 1C05

Presented by: Tao Xu, Partner, DLA Piper US LLP and Stephanie Zosak, Associate, DLA Piper US LLP

An ever increasing number of countries around the world now have laws regulating franchising, and new statutes appear with very little if any advance notice. As in the United States, some address the sale of franchises, some deal with the franchisor - franchisee relationship. Complying with them can be difficult, and it is frequently hard even to learn what is required and how the requirements will be interpreted. This seminar will tell you what laws, in what countries, impose what obligations on you...and how you can deal with them as effectively, efficiently and economically as possible.
