Gordon & Rees partner Calvin E. Davis of Los Angeles has been certified as a specialist in Franchise and Distribution Law by the State Bar of California. There are fewer than 50 lawyers in the state who have achieved specialty certification in this practice area.
Achieving State Bar specialty certification involves a year-long process. Applicants must have extensive experience and education in the field, numerous references, and sit for an all-day examination.
Davis, co-chairman of Gordon & Rees’s Franchise Law Group, has successfully litigated numerous matters for national franchisors including trademark disputes, prosecution of royalty claims, and defense of vicarious liability lawsuits. He has more than 25 years of business litigation experience with a focus on franchise law.
