"Franchising is one of the fastest and most risk-free ways to expand a business without diluting the ownership. Our client base ranges from start-up franchisors and franchisees to multinational companies."
The UAE has been a strong market for all kinds of franchises over the years. Horizons & Co are proud to have been involved in many of these successes, representing some of the leading international franchisors, in addition to franchisees, area developers and companies acquiring franchise systems. This experience makes us uniquely placed to offer sound advice on the opportunities, pitfalls and scope of franchise laws affecting your concept.
Where appropriate, we can also assist companies in establishing distribution and licensing systems that are not franchises, as well as providing advice on businesses which may inadvertently fall within the scope of the franchise laws.
How can we help?
We assist franchisors and franchisees with expert knowledge and practical legal support across any of the following:
- Foreign franchisors launching operations in Dubai and the UAE
- UAE firms expanding by establishing new franchise businesses or acquiring existing franchises
- Entrepreneurs in the purchase or sale of franchises
- Franchise disputes
