Opportunities for growth in the Distribution & Franchise sector are widespread and excellent, but it is critical to remain up to speed on legal developments that affect both planning and day-to-day operations. Solid intelligence is the key to building prosperity.

The 27th Annual Law of Product Distribution & Franchise Seminar: Building Prosperity will not only offer the benefit of what our attorneys have learned over the past 27 years but what’s been happening in the industry over the last year and how those developments will affect the future of domestic and global distribution and franchise markets. This year, we are proud to have augmented our industry strength and scope of knowledge with presentations by attorneys who have joined us through the recent combination of Foley & Lardner LLP with Texas-based Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP.
