Business Advisory partner Daniel Varney was featured in the Daily Telegraph print and digital editions today sharing his legal perspective on business succession planning.
Daniel commented that while the prospect of a new leader might raise questions over how a brand will continue to thrive, it also raises very real concerns over intellectual property. “You must consider the rights of a founder to aspects of the brand, especially if they literally act as the ‘face’ of their business,” he said.
He also cited the legal difficulties surrounding Papa John’s and how IP agreements played into discussions around succession planning.
