Fischer & Schickendantz offers clients deep knowledge of commercial structures and contracts. We regularly help set up franchise and distribution agreements on behalf of global companies, advising on the issues to consider before engaging a local company, and adapting standard international contracts to local regulation. The firm has recently advised on the set up, incorporation and tax structure for retail companies such as Calvin Klein (PVH Corp) and Gap Stores, both locally and regionally.
