Ontario now has specific legislation, which affects traditional franchising, as well as most other methods of distributing goods and services.  This has a significant impact on anyone selling, buying or dealing with franchises, and places a substantial new responsibility on their legal advisors.  Whether you are an experienced franchise law lawyer, in house counsel, a franchisor, or a litigation, commercial or IP lawyer, this 2nd annual program is a must for you.
