Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. 

Franchise Law & Legal Advice in Israel

Franchise Law and Regulation in Israel:

In so far as legal requirements for franchising in Israel, there is no franchise law per se, and Franchisors are not required to exhibit an FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document). The legal relationship between the franchisor and franchisee is bound by a commercial legal agreement between the parties, which are subject to general applicable commercial laws in Israel. The only specific regulation of franchise agreements in Israel may include certain antitrust rules, which define certain requirements in order for a franchise agreement not to be deemed as a “restrictive arrangement”, which may be subject to the approval of the Israeli Competition Authority. 

As for the future, Steven Wolfson (Founder of the Israel Franchise Institute), in his role as the Chairman of the Committee for the Promotion and Regulation of Franchising in Israel for LAHAV (the Israel Chamber of Independent Organizations and Businesses), is highly involved in promoting and forwarding franchise regulation in Israel. Steven has introduced the IFI franchise STANDARDS program, which will be launched later in 2021, together with the IFI franchise code of Ethics.
