Orrick’s James Hargrove co-authored a new publication, Modern Slavery & The Hotel Industry: Best Practice Guidance for Franchising, with Archana Kotecha, Asia Region Director and Head of Legal at Liberty Shared.

The guide explores the risks and business obligations associated with modern slavery in relation to hotel franchise agreements and offers practical steps franchisors can take to ensure that their operations are free from these risks.
