31 countries and law firms provided input regarding the national franchise law in their respective country. They don't stop in drafting international and national franchise, master-franchise and sub-masterfranchise agreements, but go the extra mile in helping the franchisors make the right business decision based on know-how of the local and international law.

It has been two years since we issued the first edition of the International Franchise Handbook. At that time, 18 countries and law firms provided input regarding the national franchise law in their respective country.

Now, two years later and following extremely positive feedback throughout the footprint of the first edition, we are proud to present to you the second edition of this handbook. We are very pleased to see that the demand for international legal expertise in this field is unbroken, proven also by the fact that this edition covers 31 countries and territories throughout the world, from East to West and North to South; from Canada to New Zealand, from Norway to South Africa.

And whereas our world has moved on two years and time has brought new challenges to global trade and security, nothing has changed from the initial statement made already in our first edition: A global view with local expertise is of the essence. Each
law firm contributing to this edition is a champion of franchise law in its home country and at the same time is united with everyone else in the cross-border approach to international matters. 

This international franchise group comprehensively supports companies from all industrial sectors in every aspect of national and international franchise law and their attorneys should be one of the first contact points for franchisors when it comes to structuring and evaluating steps to expand into foreign countries.

We at DWF with offices in U.K., Ireland, Germany, France and Dubai – and we know we can also speak on behalf of all colleagues from all law firms in this edition – do not stop in drafting international and national franchise, master-franchise and sub-masterfranchise agreements, but go the extra mile in helping the franchisors make the right business decision based on our know-how of the local and international law.

Finally, we would like to thank all colleagues and firms who have contributed to this edition and hope that this edition will have the same success as the previous edition.
