Joel Buckberg, Shareholder and Co-Chair of Baker Donelson's Hospitality Industry Service Team, will present "Managing System Impact When Applicable Laws Change" during the American Bar Association's 34th Annual Forum on Franchising on Thursday October 20 at 2:15 p.m. During this program, Mr. Buckberg and fellow speaker Ted P. Pearce will examine how the franchise system, and the respective rights of the parties, can be affected when changes occur to significant applicable laws that may be "baked into" the franchise agreement or other components or practices of the franchise system. The panelists will focus on dealing with traditionally volatile laws, such as the interpretation of non-competition covenants and resale price maintenance restrictions, with sea changes such as health care reform, and with targeted policy changes such as the Kansas prohibition of indemnification. This program will also review tips for drafting franchise agreements to address changes in law that could fundamentally impact the franchise relationship.
