ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - May 17, 2019 - PRLog -- Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that Orange County and Los Angeles partner Elizabeth Weldon has been designated a Certified Specialist in Franchise and Distribution Law by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

The State Bar of California's Legal Specialization program certifies legal specialists who have gone beyond the standard licensing requirements. It was the first of its kind in the United States, created for the purposes of increasing public protection and encouraging attorney competence. To be certified, attorneys must take and pass a written examination in their specialty area, demonstrate a high level of experience in the specialty area, and practice continuously in the area. They must fulfill greater continuing legal education requirements and be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.

She represents franchisors in matters including breach of contract, trademark and trade name infringement, business competition torts, and franchise law claims. Additionally, Weldon represents both large and small businesses in commercial litigation matters, including breach of contract, tort, class action, trademark, and trade dress claims.

In the community, Weldon has been involved with Girls Incorporated® of Orange County for more than eight years, serving on the Board of Directors since 2011. She has been selected for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America®, Franchise Law (2016-2019) and the Southern California Super Lawyers - Rising Stars Edition, Franchise/Dealership, Business Litigation, Intellectual Property Litigation (2007-2016). Weldon is an active member of the American Bar Association Forum on Franchising and a current member of the Forum's Governing Committee.
