Maslyn Law PLC is pleased to announce that it has been named the "US Franchise Law Firm of the Year" by Acquisition International Magazine.
To be honest, I am always a little suspect of these sorts of professional awards and rankings -- and you should be, too. I am never sure which recognition is made based on actual data, like a truly independent investigation, peer or client review, or interviews. Too often professional recognition like this is merely a marketing device developed by a third party to sell magazines or drive web traffic. And, with this one, I'm also not sure. But, who doesn't appreciate recognition of their hard work, right?
I suggest that it would be a very bad idea to hire a lawyer based only on a recognition or award given by some person or entity that you do not know well. The better approach, I believe, is to identify several lawyers that seem to fit your need and then speak with each of them directly to determine whether they are the right fit for you. And, of course, if you need franchising or distribution legal help, please call me.
