Rather than establishing a dedicated presence in each target market, many established and ﬂedging companies increasingly look to franchise, agency, and distribution arrangements as an alternative means of introducing their brands and products to local consumers. While such arrangements are often cost-eﬀective, they are not without their associated legal risks.
The advisory team invests time to understand the needs of our clients so it can deliver astute, relevant and effective advice. Our team not only advises on corporate structures, but also gives sound commercial advice with regard to share voting rights, company management, JV structuring, general assembly meetings, and employment related issues. Given the restrictions on foreign investment in Egypt, we are able to advise our clients on the optimal structuring of corporate arrangements to ensure their goals are met in compliance with the law.
In addition to providing commercial and industry insight, our team also supports our clients throughout the dispute resolution process, including mediation, arbitration, or litigation up to and including the Court of Cassation (the highest court in Egypt).
