Request a copy of the whitepaper on “Converting Franchises to Licenses and Vice-Versa,” an informative piece exploring the business issues and pros and cons of franchise and non-franchise systems.

First presented in conjunction with the International Franchise Association’s 45th Annual Legal Symposium, held on May 20-22, 2012 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC, this whitepaper was co-authored by Mark Siebert, the president of iFranchise Group, along with two prominent franchise attorneys and corporate counsel of Seattle’s Best Coffee Division of Starbucks Corporation.

Topics covered in this whitepaper include:

  • When is a license or distributorship agreement also a franchise?
  • How can a license avoid franchise laws using exemptions?
  • Business issues in converting a license to a franchise (or a licensee to a franchisee)
  • De-franchising: converting a franchise to a license or distributorship
