Sotos LLP is pleased to welcome Ryan McCabe as an associate.

Ryan carries on a commercial practice with a principal focus on franchising. He advises clients on all matters relating to franchise expansion and development, including the preparation of franchise agreements and disclosure documents, partnership and shareholder agreements, entity incorporation, and the merging and acquisition of franchise systems. Ryan’s practice also includes advising on the viability of trademark registration and enforcement of such rights against trademark infringement. Prior to being called to the Bar, Ryan articled and summered with Sotos, during which he was exposed to franchise litigation – an experience that he uses in preparing commercial agreements.
