 Over the years our IP practice group has offered different levels of services connected to franchising law & distributorship issues which services centre around advising major international franchisors as well as assistance to local franchisees or prospective ones.

From this experience we have tailored what we consider to be a most efficient and informative client service which includes:

Services to Franchisors

  • representing your interests in Malta, representing you in negations and on contracts

  • advice on direct licensing; joint venture agreements and master franchise agreements

  • formal appointment by foreign firms and acting as local council in advising them on local franchising legislation

  • general counselling on Maltese IP & Franchising law

Services to Franchisees

  • delineating the business concept including the reasons for selecting a particular franchise

  • revision of franchise agreements, manuals, business methods, get-up requirements and other compulsory covenants

  • analysing the track record of the franchisor and the strength of the franchise in question

  • analysing standard clauses and studying clauses that can be open to negotiation

  • structuring of best methods of protection

  • counselling clients on ICT requirements and technology agreements

We encourage prospective franchisees and franchisors to contact us to discuss preliminarily the best strategy for taking on a franchise arrangement or entering the Maltese market. Our IP team will be happy to discuss legal and business strategy matters that are applicable in this area.
