Areas of law



In Austria there is no franchise law that explicitly regulates this internationally important distribution method. Therefore, when drafting or reviewing franchise contracts, reference must be made to numerous legal bases of Austrian commercial law in order to make the regulations conform to the law. Our services for franchisors and franchisees are therefore usually provided before, during and at the end of the franchise cooperation.

  • advice on setting up franchisees and contract review of international franchise agreements
  • adaptation and review of franchise contracts of international franchisors to the current Austrian legal situation
  • establishment of franchise agreements
  • clarification of liability issues from the ongoing franchise operation
  • design of shop in shop franchise systems taking into account the contractual requirements of the shop space provider
  • drafting and review of master franchise agreements
  • enforcement of contractual claims in case of termination of the contract
  • legal representation in case of dispute
