Seminar

Traditionally, the federal and state laws enacted to protect franchisees, dealers, and distributors have been viewed as more of a “low-tech” phenomenon. However, some of the most far-reaching applications of these statutes have been to relationships that the parties never envisioned would be a “franchise” within the meaning of federal or state law, including distributors of computer hardware, value-added resellers of computer software, and licensees of other high-tech suppliers.

Based on 21 years of experience presenting the nationally acclaimed Annual Law of Product Distribution & Franchise Seminar, Foley's Distribution & Franchise Practice is offering a new version of the seminar addressing the legal challenges that the Internet poses for suppliers of high-tech and low-tech products alike.

Make plans to join us for Distribution and Franchising in Cyberspace: Protecting the Crown Jewels in the Internet Age.
