Leader of the firm's nationwide Distribution and Franchise team, David Jarrett counsels manufacturers on the management of their retail distribution networks. While he strives to develop reasonable solutions to avoid litigation, if an impasse does arise, he couples his broad knowledge of the specialized laws with his litigation experience to resolve differences.
