The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced Wednesday that Phoenix partner Jeffrey H. Wolf has been named a Legal Eagle honoree for 2016 by Franchise Times magazine.

Legal Eagle honorees are attorneys who are viewed as the best franchise lawyers, at the top of their games, nominated by their peers, clients and the Franchise Times’ editorial board as the rainmakers, go-to lawyers, and ethical problem solvers in the franchise community.

They speak at industry events and legal symposiums, win court cases, write seamless contracts and documents, and otherwise meet the evaluation criteria of the Franchise Times editorial panel. This year, approximately 150 attorneys in the United States were named and will be featured in the April issue of Franchise Times magazine.

Wolf is a member of the Franchise & Distribution Team in the firm’s Phoenix office. For nearly 30 years, Wolf has regularly represented franchisors, manufacturers, and marketers of products and services in a wide range of legal matters. He has extensive experience handling cases involving contract disputes, employment disputes, trade secret misappropriation, and trademark infringement, and he frequently speaks and publishes articles on related topics.

Wolf also serves as outside general counsel to several Phoenix-based behavioral health care companies. He has been listed as a Legal Eagle by Franchise Times magazine each year since 2004 and in The Best Lawyers in America and Southwest Super Lawyers each year since 2007 and was recognized by Southwest Super Lawyers as one of the Top 50 attorneys in Arizona in 2012 and 2013.

Within the local community, Wolf serves on the board of directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix and on the advisory board for the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. He earned his law degree from Washington University in St. Louis and his bachelor’s degree, cum laude, from the University of Hartford.
