• Provide scientific and legal advice on everything relating franchise agreements and commercial representation. Franchise agreements require extensive legal, practical and commercial experience. It goes back to the fact that the commercial contract was created by US businessmen in the twentieth century, specifically in the second half thereof, but it remained unidentified. Consequently, the legal systems of different countries went to construe and apply the commercial contract in conformity with their respective national statutes. Therefore, international organizations attempted to find an identification and a disciplined legal system for this contract due to the high importance it has got, particularly after the emergence of World Trade Organization. Among these organizations comes the International Institute for Consolidation of UN Private Law Rules, which prepared a Study on this contract in 1986. The State of Kuwait is an emerging market where no specific statute on franchise agreements is available.
