Rich Greenstein Named Chair of DLA Piper’s US Franchise Practice

dla piper

Chicago-based international law firm DLA Piper announced this week that the firm has named Rich Greenstein as the Chair of the firm’s US Franchise and Distribution Practice.

Greenstein is a founding member of the Atlanta office of the firm and has led the firm’s Franchise and Distribution practice in the Southeast since 2006. He is also on the Policy Committee of the firm and a member of the Corporate and Private Equity practices.

Greenstein succeeds Dennis Wieczorek who passed away on July 13. Philip Zeidman, Senior Partner of the firm and a member of the Franchise and Distribution practice, said, “We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of affection and sadness at Dennis’s death. At the same time, we’ve been gratified by the messages of support from clients with long histories of association with our firm’s franchising practice, including the International Franchise Association, which we’ve served as General Counsel for 54 years. Now with Rich at the helm, we will, of course, continue to provide the same level of service to our franchising clients that Dennis exemplified for so many years.”
