Early on, our Franchise lawyers foresaw the importance of this business tool and, working with a large number of clients representing a wide variety of industries, have developed deep knowledge and skills in the area. Our targeted experience enables us to anticipate issues and assist our clients in reaching their business objectives. 

We have experience in essentially every type of arrangement utilized in international franchising and the documentation to support them, including development, master and unit franchise agreements, direct licensing; area (or multi-unit) franchises; sub-franchise (or master franchise) arrangements; conversion franchises; combination franchises; niche (or alternative location or channel) franchises; joint ventures; and, in a growing number of cases, a combination of these approaches.

We represent major international franchises established in Lebanon and the Middle East. AJA Law Firm counsels companies on evolving their business into a franchise by recommending the most favorable legal framework, and market entry strategies, as well as providing legal input on franchise manuals and other operational documents.
