Franchise Educations: I recently had the pleasure of speaking with and getting to know Attorney Keith Kanouse, who has long been practicing franchise law within his extensive “wheelhouse.”

Keith was good enough to share with me many of the articles he’s authored and written in collaboration with, in some cases, other attorneys.

With the express permission of Counselor Kanouse, here you’ll find exceptional articles and information.

The articles, in some instances, are a bit older but have aged exceptionally well.  It is my honor and privilege to bring them to you with the permission of a brilliant franchise attorney, Mr. Keith Kanouse – Franchise Education
