From the back inside cover:
Mr. Brown chose to write this book rather than a treatise because he felt strongly that what is needed to be said about franchising should not be obscured in scholarly terms. He is an activist with extensive trial experience in Anti-trust, tax, equity, labor, corporate and administrative proceedings, minority stakeholder derivative suits, mortgages, conveyances, wills, and trusts. In this age of specialists, he prefers to be known as a general practitioner.
Harold Brown graduated from Yale in 1936, magna cum laude in economics and three years later received his LL.B. from Harvard with honors in administrative law. In Washington, he served on the National War Labor Board and today is senior partner of Brown and Legihton in Boston. He was principally responsible for the passage of the Massachusetts “long-arm” statute and, as a member of the Civil Procedure Committee of the Boston Bar Association, has been working on a revision of the procedural code to be based on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Mr. Brown participates regularly in legal workshops and is a frequent contributor to professional journals and periodicals.
