Register Via Zoom
The SBM Antitrust, Franchising, & Trade Regulation Section will host a virtual discussion during the lunch hour with Charles S. Marion and Ari N. Stern, authors of the
Franchise Law Journal
“But They Were Not My Client”: The Prospect of a Franchisor’s Outside Counsel Being Liable to an Aggrieved Franchisee
The article explores (1) the duties and responsibilities, if any, that a franchisor’s outside counsel owes to a prospective franchisee; (2) the impact of any state franchise laws on the relationship between franchisor’s outside counsel and a prospective franchisee; (3) potential causes of actions a franchisee could assert against a franchisor’s outside counsel; (4) defenses to commonly asserted claims against franchisor’s outside counsel; (5) policy considerations attendant to the relationship between franchisor counsel and prospect; and (6) best practices that outside counsel should employ to eliminate or reduce the risk of such claims.
During this lunch and learn, we will take an in depth look at the authors’ perspectives as they summarize the article and offer their viewpoints before opening the topic up for discussion to attendees. Please join us as this unique experience will be valuable information for all.
For all information about the event, please contact Mark Burzych at 517-381-3159, or
