ABA’s 44th Forum on Franchising
Dawn Newton, franchise and distribution law specialist, will be co-presenting a program called “Lessons from the Left Coast: Franchising in California and Washington” at the ABA’s 44th Annual Forum on Franchising on October 14, 2021.
The new reality is that doing business, and especially franchising, in California and Washington presents unique challenges. Legal and operational issues ranging from data privacy, joint employer, non-competes, AB-5 and its progeny, the gig economy, anti-poaching, negotiated sales, and the likelihood of aggressive state enforcement, all result in franchisors having to carefully consider the pros and cons of entering the lucrative California and Washington markets. This program explores the issues that are unique (or at least at heightened levels of focus) in California and Washington, from experienced lawyers who live and work in these states.
