Philip F Zeidman, DLA Piper LLP (US)

Philip Zeidman devotes his practice to domestic and international distribution, licensing and franchising law. He has served as general counsel to the International Franchise Association throughout his career, is counsel to a number of US and foreign companies and trade associations and has also served as special counsel to the Japan Franchise Association. He has engaged in an international transactional practice, testified on franchising before governmental bodies and appeared before business and professional groups in numerous countries. He was the first chairman of the American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section’s Distribution and Franchising Committee, was the chair of the International Franchising Committee of the International Bar Association and is the editor of Legal Aspects of Selling and Buying (Thomson/Reuters).

Who’s Who Legal named him Global Franchise Lawyer of the year for nine consecutive years, every year the award had been given, and in 2017 presented him with its Lifetime Achievement Award. Quoting from those interviewed, the publication referred to him as ‘without doubt, the number one franchise practitioner in the world’. He has repeatedly been recognised by both Chambers Global and Chambers USA, which concluded: ‘You’d have to be blind, deaf and dumb to not know Philip Zeidman.’
