Rivka Schochet - Miller Canfield Lawyers
At the 2009 IFA annual convention in San Diego, Rivka Schochet of law firm Miller Canfield joined Franchise Direct for a discussion on franchise law and the franchise industry. Their conversation was captured in this franchise video.
“We have a franchise distribution team at Miller Canfield and we have an interdisciplinary group of transactional lawyers and litigators…anything that any franchisor would need.”
Rivka describes a franchise as “a system that is replicable; with a trademark that makes it a unique and valuable product and provides royalties.
She gives this advice to people looking to franchise their business:
"A franchise is a business and you have to have a really good business plan, a good business that can be taught in a simple, understandable method that can be repeated by franchisees will yield a successful franchise.”
She also urges people looking for a new business opportunity to consider franchising.
“It’s a great opportunity. It’s an opportunity to take charge of your own future and hard work will bring success,” she says.
