International Franchising in Argentina: new contribution of Castro Sammartino & Pierini
Castro Sammartino & Pierini, Attorneys at Law, announce the publication of the first edition of International Franchising 2016: Legal and Business Considerations, a comprehensive reference guide for lawyers, business people and academics to use in navigating the legal and business issues impacting franchise arrangements throughout the world. This new volume covers Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East.
Mario Eduardo Castro Sammartino from Castro Sammartino & Pierini, Attorneys at Law, authored the Argentina chapter in this 590-page publication and worked with Nixon Peabody franchise partner Kendal Tyre, based in Washington, D.C., who developed and edited the book. The publication was a collaboration of more than 70 other lawyers around the globe.
International Franchising 2016, published by LexNoir Foundation, highlights issues encountered when drafting international franchise agreements, and covers local law governing franchise arrangements in 41 jurisdictions. In those chapters devoted to a specific country, a legal expert in the designated jurisdiction addresses the basic issues that a franchise lawyer must know to competently advise a client in expanding its franchise system to that particular country. Many of the guidelines provided by local, foreign counsel are more broadly applicable to other types of cross-border agreements and transactions.
