As states around the country prepare to end their states of emergency and lift all restrictions on business operations, we are anxious to get back to some semblance of normal. In that vein, we will sponsor two IN-PERSON meetings next month at which, we will cover some very important and timely information. On Wednesday, June 16, we will kick off the resurrection of DDIFO Regional Meetings at the Hilton Rosemont Chicago O’Hare Hotel. The Mid-West Regional Meeting features Attorney Rob Bernstein, partner with the firm of Laner Muchin and an expert on labor and employment law as well as Attorney David Paris, name partner in the firm of Paris Ackerman LLP and a premier attorney in the handling of all manner of franchise transactions with Dunkin’. One week later on Wednesday, June 23, DDIFO will host its Northeast Regional Meeting at the Framingham Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center and we’ll again feature Attorney David Paris. This program will also feature labor and employment law experts, Attorney J. Hagood Tighe, a partner with the national firm Fisher Phillips and co-chair of the firm’s Wage and Hour Group, along with Attorney Jeffrey Fritz from the firm’s Boston office. We are hopeful of getting a number of other meetings in different regions on the calendar over the next several weeks and months to bring you more valuable information as we come out of the coronavirus lockdowns across the nation. We hope you’ll join be able to join us at one of these meetings. Watch for the announcement fliers coming next week.
