Represented an entertainment technology company regarding claims that it had unlawfully sold franchises in California in violation of state franchise sales statute by entering into certain technology license agreements.  The claims were complicated by the fact that such claims were  brought  in the context of a bankruptcy proceeding filed by the putative franchisee, and involved patent claims against our client as well.  The case was eventually settled to our client's satisfaction through the negotiation of new licensing arrangements between the parties.
