Haynes and Boone Attorneys Named Franchise Times Legal Eagles


Haynes and Boone, LLP announced today that four attorneys from its Franchise and Distribution Practice Group have been recognized in the Franchise Times Annual Legal Eagle Awards.

Receiving the awards were partners Joyce Mazero and Deborah Coldwell of Haynes and Boone’s Dallas office, and partner Jan Gilbert and of counsel Carl Zwisler of the Washington, D.C. office. Members of the firm’s franchise group have appeared on the Legal Eagle list every year since its inception in 2004.

“It is an honor to be recognized by our peers and clients in the franchise community for the experience, knowledge and quality customer service that we are committed to providing in our practice everyday,” said Mazero.

”These four attorneys, along with the entire Franchise and Distribution Practice Group, consistently offer Haynes and Boone clients the strategic business advice and legal counsel they need to promote growth and profitability in their businesses and manage dispute resolution and litigation services on their behalf,” said Terry Conner, managing partner at the firm.

The Legal Eagle Awards recognize the top 125 U.S. franchise lawyers who are legal “rainmakers, go-to lawyers, and ethical problem-solvers” of those nominated, and was created to serve as a resource as demand for legal talent increases within the franchising community.

Lawyers on the list were nominated by their peers, adversaries and clients. The complete list appears in Franchise Times’ April issue.
