Franchise Lawyers Networking Forum

28 November 2018

17:00 onwards

Bird & Bird, 12 New Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP

We are hosting this series of events in response to requests from clients for a forum where they can network and share knowledge under Chatham House rules with fellow in-house lawyers experiencing similar challenges in a niche industry sector. The theme for this particular event will be Brexit.

In the run-up to Brexit, franchise businesses need to consider some of the immediate challenges they may face, most notably the impact on the free movement of goods, services and workers and a number of areas covered by the single market, including the protection of IP rights.

With the Brexit cut-off date looming, we are pleased to be joined by Partner, Sally Shorthose, who is leading the Bird & Bird Brexit Steering Committee. Sally gives regular talks and has published several articles on the implications of Brexit, and will open the event with a brief update and overview of key considerations for your business when planning for Brexit.
