We provide advice on all types of franchise arrangements in the MENA region, which includes advising on franchise network structuring, IP protection, product distribution and the most appropriate contractual framework in relation thereto.

We have advised both local and international clients on a large number of franchise roll-outs in the MENA region which requires a detailed knowledge of the local licensing and regulatory environment, in particular when structuring and documenting the most appropriate franchise model for each specific case.

In addition, we work closely with local regulatory authorities in the region to ensure that all statutory and practice related issues are accounted for when advising clients on franchise roll-outs, whether locally or regionally.

In advising clients on franchising, we work closely with other specialist practices in the firm, where necessary, including intellectual property, regulatory, litigation and corporate structuring, in order to ensure that all potential issues are identified and appropriately provided for in the relevant contractual framework.
