Haynes and Boone Attorneys Honored by Franchise Times


Franchise Times Magazine has named three Haynes and Boone, LLP partners in its Franchise and Distribution Practice Group as winners in the 6th Annual Legal Eagle Awards.

Receiving the awards were franchise and distribution partners Joyce Mazero and Deborah Coldwell of Haynes and Boone’s Dallas office and Jan Gilbert of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. Representing franchisors, Mazero and Gilbert handle transactional matters, and Coldwell focuses on litigation. Members of the firm’s franchise group have appeared on the Legal Eagle list every year since its inception in 2004.

“As lawyers, our first priority is to ensure our clients receive the legal counsel required to promote growth and profitability in their businesses and to efficiently manage dispute resolution and litigation services as needed,” said Mazero, head of Haynes and Boone’s franchise practice. “To be recognized by our peers and clients in the franchise community proves we are meeting those goals.”

Gilbert said, “We are committed to providing experience, knowledge and quality customer service in our practice everyday, and this award reinforces our role as trusted legal advisors to our clients.”

Receiving a record number of nominations, the Legal Eagle Awards selects the top 125 U.S. franchise lawyers. The awards list represents the best and brightest in franchise law and was created to serve as a resource within the franchising community as demand for legal talent continues to increase.
