An Interview with Carmen D. Caruso
How did you choose to practice in franchise law? Is there anything that or anyone who drew you into this area?
As a young lawyer who started in a great litigation boutique, I represented McDonald’s Corp. in a series of cases in Illinois, California, New York, and New Jersey. Through that particular client, I was fortunate to meet some of the most knowledgeable people in franchising and to see up close the things that can make a system great. Later on, when I went out on my own, the experience was invaluable in attracting clients; it remains invaluable today.
