Sandy Wall - DLA Piper

The very fabulous Sandy Wall is a transactional franchise attorney with over 30 years of experience and extensive in-house experience. But right now, the best thing about Sandy is she will be dancing with us this year.  We are so grateful to the people of DLA Piper for their generous support since the very start... and for lending us Sandy this year!

Sandy rejoins DLA Piper after serving as Managing Counsel of the Franchise Practice Group of McDonald's Corporation, where she led the team responsible for franchise law compliance matters.

Under her leadership, the group was responsible for issuing franchise documents to all franchisees in the US. She also oversaw the transfers of all McDonald's restaurants, including sales between franchisees and the purchase and sale of company-owned restaurants. In addition, she was responsible for the preparation, maintenance and filing of McDonald's franchise disclosure document (FDD).

Sandy also spent over three years as an associate general counsel of Sears, Roebuck & Co., overseeing commercial contracts, vendor agreements, license agreements with third-party contractors as well as putting together several startup franchise programs.

Sandy says, "I am definitely NOT a dancer. The last time I did any kind of dancing like the hustle was at dorm parties when I was a college student during the 70’s!" She adds, "It was NOTHING like the dance I will be doing this time."  (Scoop:  her past experience may actually come in really handy but you'll have to come see for yourself...)
