Snell & Wilmer Partner Elizabeth M. Weldon Co-Hosts ABA's 43rd Annual Forum on Franchising
By: Snell & Wilmer
The mission of the Forum on Franchising is to be the preeminent forum for the study and discussion of the legal aspects of franchising. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Weldon, her co-host Gary Batenhorst and the Forum's planning committee made the decision to move forward with the annual event in a virtual format. The event offered workshops, plenaries, and intensive programs, along with virtual networking opportunities for the industry's leading professionals.
"I am proud to be a part of the Forum on Franchising, Franchising in Focus 2020 @ Home," said Weldon. "We faced many challenges this year and our Forum community rose to the occasion by creating great programs and reaching out to each other virtually, making the event a success."

She concentrates her practice on business litigation and franchise litigation.
