Accomplishments for Hotel Chains and Other Franchisors

We provide extensive experience in franchisor representation for companies offering hotel, time-share and vacation resort franchises.

His accomplishments include franchising three separate hotel chains from the start-up phase, negotiating without resort to litigation the resolution of a dispute regarding encroachment into franchisee's area of protection, successfully protecting a franchisor's rights in a service mark challenged by Marriott Corporation, forcing Marriott to not only drop its challenge to the company's service mark but to cease the use of its service mark that was similar to company's service mark; and successfully stopping several domain name infringers from usurping domain names. As Corporate Counsel to Confectionery Square Corporation, a franchise chain of candy shops in major shopping centers, he coordinated and assisted the chain's rapid expansion through franchising.
