Franchising and Distribution, Latvia

Introduction

Franchising has experienced unprecedented growth in Europe in the recent years.  However, franchising industry remains largely unregulated.  If you contemplate franchising your business, you may require assistance by a franchise lawyer with a thorough understanding of potential pitfalls and opportunities associated with franchise business. 

Our law firm will take the time to understand how your distribution business model operates or, if you contemplate setting up a new franchise business, will develop a concept franchise and distribution model for you tailored to your specific needs.  Most franchising agreements need to reflect a number of critical provisions and certain disclosures need to be made. 

We can take care of the drafting work, advise you on the appropriate course of action with respect to required disclosures and help you negotiate contractual provisions that will suit your circumstances.  In addition, we can provide insightful analysis to distributors and dealers to understand contractual obligations to which they are committing and provide expert counsel in drafting and negotiating distribution, license and authorized dealership agreements.
