So you want to start your own business, maybe buy into a franchise but you're unsure of what legal issues you need to address.

Well, today I have a real treat for you.

Yep, we’re going to talk to a lawyer.  But wait, it gets more exciting; he’s also a Certified Public Accountant or CPA.  Now folks, before you run away screaming, give this guy a chance.  You’re not likely to find a more dynamic or interesting speaker who actually understands the ins and outs of the business world.

Eric Riess is our guest today.  Eric is an Officer for the Corporate Practice Group of the Greensfelder law firm and has extensive franchise, distribution and national and international brand and brand development experience.  He represents numerous regional, national and international franchisors as well as franchisees, developers and sub-franchisors.

Eric is also a founder and currently sits on the board of the Franchise Brokers Association, the only trade group for franchise brokers.
