Austria: Franchise Analysis 2015

2014 saw the entry of Dunkin’ Donuts into Austria with the signing of a master franchise agreement with M&D Restaurant Development. Although franchising as a business model remains quite rare in Austria, it continues to grow steadily. Four dedicated professionals are recommended in this chapter. 

CHSH Cerha Hempel Spiegelfeld Hlawati Attorneys at Law is represented by Benedikt Spiegelfeld, a lawyer with “intrinsic knowledge” of franchise and distribution law. He is an “active” member of the bar and receives “high praise” from peers and clients alike.

Head of the litigation and arbitration practice at Baker & McKenzie, Alexander Petsche regularly handles franchise and distribution disputes. He is a “great tactician” and provides “sensible advice”.

Amelie Pohl at Zumtobel + Kronberger + Rechtsanwälte is a “font of knowledge” in international franchising agreements. She combines her expertise with knowledge of competition and distribution law and is a “great asset” to her clients.

At his own firm Christoph Liebscher is noted for his “dedicated approach” to matters. He is a “talented” litigator who “really knows his stuff”.
