The law is ever-changing! Join us for our June 11 breakfast meeting when Rupert Barkoff will advise us on the changes over the past twelve months. The changes covered will primarily include judicial developments, but will also touch upon the successful and unsuccessful legislative attempts to enact laws that will directly affect the franchise community as well as any administrative changes.
