Annual Legal Symposium


IFA's Annual Legal Symposium

The Premier Event for Franchise Law Professionals 






Why should you attend IFA’s Annual Legal Symposium?


To gain invaluable insight on the latest legal challenges facing franchised businesses today, in addition to important networking time with your peers. This is the only franchise legal program that gives you an all access pass to top franchise law practitioners and franchise business leaders sharing their knowledge about the hottest topics in franchise law.


A task force of franchise legal experts works tirelessly to develop a program that is increasingly relevant in the franchising community. From informative general sessions to informative concurrent sessions; from interactive roundtables to unique networking opportunities, our Legal Symposium features knowledgeable franchise law practitioners, franchise executives, and state regulators. We offer our Judicial Update, an in-depth review of the year’s most important cases and developments in franchise law. We also include a Basics Track, allowing those with limited exposure to franchising to learn the building blocks of the discipline from seasoned franchise law professionals.

As always, while the program is important and while this is a good opportunity to earn Continuing Legal Education credit, it is the people that make the IFA Legal Symposium a truly rewarding experience. Come visit with old friends. Come network with colleagues. Come meet new players in franchising.

Join us in scenic and historic Washington D.C. each year for the premier franchise legal event. You’ll be glad you did.
