Wednesday, 11:00 a.m.  CET

6 October, 2021 | 11:00 to 11:45 a.m.



Webcast in German language – feel free to contact any member of our team for explanations in English. 

In our Deloitte Legal Update webcast series, we will –together with the German Franchise Association (Deutscher Franchiseverband e.V. – “DFV”) provide an overview of current legal and political developments in franchising. In addition, the DFV will report on current political developments that could become relevant for franchisors in the near future.

As Deloitte Legal we will present the International Franchise Handbook with legal overviews for franchisors in 44 countries worldwide, and take a closer look at the master franchise agreement as a way for franchise systems to enter the market in continental Europe, especially Germany. In this context, we will also describe the status of current case law on commercial leases against the background of the COVID 19 pandemic.

The managing director of the DFV, Mr. Torben Brodersen, will then give an assessment of possible political developments for franchising after the Bundestag elections, as well as an insight into the current work of the association, also from an international perspective.

Intended topics of focus are:

  • Presentation of the International Franchise Handbook
  • Market entry into Europe via master franchising
  • The importance of the COVID-19 case law for master franchisors
  • Possible political developments for franchising after the Bundestag elections – assessment and outlook
  • Answering your questions (Q&A)

Please feel free to submit your questions for the Q&A already during your registration.


Our team of experts Dr. Mathias Reif, partner with Deloitte Legal, and Dr. Christine von Hauch, counsel with Deloitte Legal, as well as Torben Leif Brodersen, Managing Director of the German Franchise Association, look forward to an open exchange with you.
