Andrae Marrocco, Partner in the Toronto office of cross border law firm Dickinson Wright, has been selected as a 2018 Legal Eagle by Franchise Times. The annual list of Franchise Times Legal Eagles recognizes the best attorneys in franchising (across the US and Canada) as nominated by their clients and peers, and selected by the editorial board after additional research by Franchise Times

These attorneys live and breathe franchising. And that’s important – ask any of them. They will tell you experience in the franchise sector is of the utmost importance. While they might be biased, that advice rings true, especially in this community. It’s a pretty intimate group. They know each other on a first-name basis and they are collegial even on opposite sides of a dispute.

But the best reason to partner with a seasoned franchise attorney is their mind for business. They understand the gravitas of every single legal battle, every transaction and every document. That engenders a spirit of collaboration and efficiency.

No matter the issue, the Franchise Times Legal Eagles want to get it solved fast, cheap and efficient. Nobody lasts long on this coveted list while trying to make waves in a dramatic court battle or driving up hours researching franchise law. For business owners and leaders, having a knowledgeable partner with the business case top of mind is priceless – even when the bill comes.

So sit back and enjoy a little free insight from the Legal Eagles and what makes this group so special. This year, we talked to some of the consolidators about what it takes to get a deal done in today’s red-hot market and checked in with some of the newest Legal Eagles about how they specialize within franchise law.
