ABA features Leonard Vines’ program as best of Forum on Franchising

January 11, 2016

The American Bar Association has recognized a program co-presented by Greensfelder Officer Leonard D. Vines as the best of last fall’s ABA Forum on Franchising.

Vines, a member of Greensfelder’s Franchising & Distribution group, presented a session on negotiating franchise agreements in October at the 38th annual ABA Forum on Franchising in New Orleans, along with co-panelists Elizabeth S. Dillon and Susan E. Tegt. As a result of the program’s selection as the best of the 2015 Forum, it will be presented again in February as a webinar titled “Negotiating Challenging Provisions in Franchise Agreements.”

The presentation addresses drafting and negotiating key provisions in franchise agreements and development agreements, from the franchisor and franchisee perspective.

With extensive experience representing franchisors and distributors, Vines is a nationally recognized expert in franchising. A frequent lecturer and writer on franchise topics, he represents national, regional and local franchisors and is ranked nationally by Chambers USA. He is co-editor of the ABA’s Mergers and Acquisitions of Franchise Companies, 2nd Edition.
