Ata Patent Inc. attorneys also have particular experience in the area of franchising, and we have counseled and represented many companies in employing this method of expansion, both domestically and internationally. Franchising is a method of distribution that combines the advantages of a branded, centralized, specialized system with the capital and micro-management of local independent business persons to produce a market competitor with critical mass. It can leverage a business's success far beyond its own capital and management resources.
Franchising's inherent geographic expansiveness and long-term
business relationships cause it to be affected by an array of
dynamic Turkish laws. While these various laws and regulations can
be ambiguous and confusing and can create risks such as inadvertent
franchising, Ata Patent Inc. attorneys have the knowledge and
expertise to guide our clients to minimize these risks.
