07Jan Franchising in China This hour-long webinar, part two in our series, will address aspects of operating in China, such as human resources issues, data protection protocols, protecting your trademarks, tax consideration, and annual filings. We will then turn to a topic that has not received much attention and that has become timely for a growing number of foreign franchisors and investors: exiting China. It is a process that is more challenging than one might think. We will speak to the legal procedures as well as the practical side of withdrawing from the market. MCLE credit is available for this webinar.
