Everything you need to know about franchise law updates and the Barnier effect

Hardwicke’s annual franchising conference will be taking place on Tuesday, 28 November 2017.

You will find a detailed programme for the event below.

The final slot in the programme will involve delegate input. As a franchising specialist, we would like to hear from you with any ‘hot topic’ which the panel can research in advance and the attendees can then discuss in an open forum. Whether it’s about the need to include all ‘representations’ in a schedule, operating a three-line-whip at annual franchisees’ conferences or even how to choose the best forum for a particular dispute, we would love to hear from you. The panel will spend about 5-10 minutes on a selection of the topics put forward.
