In Vietnam, franchising is an imprecise practice—although a system of registration and a set of regulations do exist, the framework lacks depth, which causes uncertainty for those wishing to operate a franchise in the country.
International Franchising, Second Edition (Release 3, 2014), a guide to franchising law and practice in 34 countries around the world, sheds light on Vietnam’s system of franchising with the guide’s Vietnam chapter, authored by Michael K. Lee, Jim Dao, and Tu Ngoc Trinh, lawyers at Tilleke & Gibbins. In particular, the guide touches on the following main subjects:
- Legal framework
- Intellectual property
- Dispute resolution
- Alternatives to franchising
International Franchising is published by Juris Publishing and edited by the Center for International Legal Studies, an Austrian-based nonprofit research, training, and law publication institute that promotes the dissemination of information among members of the international legal community.
