Maslyn Law PLC is again pleased to announce that Patrick Maslyn has been included in Who’s Who Legal: Franchise 2014. This marks the fifth year in a row that Mr. Maslyn has been recognized by this publication as one of the world’s leading franchise law practitioners.
About Who’s Who Legal
Unlike many lawyer ranking publications, Who’s Who Legal does not sell entry into its rankings. The selection process involves distribution of questionnaires to lawyers around the world to nominate their peers and provide supporting information about their nominations. Then, individuals repeatedly nominated are vetted and researched to confirm their bona fides. Next, a preliminary list of names is circulated among in-house counsel and private lawyers to elicit additional thoughts and comments. And, finally, live interviews are conducted to further verify the refine and confirm the final listings of lawyers who – in Who’s Who Legal’s phrasing – “by general agreement, are considered to be pre-eminent in their field.”
To put it another way, being included in this list is an honor because it reflects a respect of colleagues practicing in the field of franchise law.
About the List
The Who’s Who Legal: Franchise 2014 list includes only 389 lawyers world-wide – and only about 150 U.S. lawyers. Only 11 lawyers in Virginia are included, including only 2 in the Richmond, VA area.
