Our firm has been advising hotel and restaurant owners and operators in Lebanon and the MENA region for more than 20 years.
We help clients from the inception of their hotel project to the opening and thereafter operation of the hotel, covering all legal aspects of the design, tendering and construction and rehabilitation phases.
Our legal services cover the full spectrum of the necessary contracts and agreements pertaining to the owner/operator, and franchisor/franchisee relationship and, in this respect, we prepare and negotiate, among others, exclusivity agreements, technical and pre-opening services agreements, license agreements, operation and management agreements and franchise agreements.
Sami Nahas Law Firm is one of the very few Lebanese law firms having extensive expertise in all aspects of the food and beverage industry. We represent restaurants and food and beverage groups (owners, franchisors and franchisees of restaurants, caterers, etc.) with respect to their group structuring, their day-to-day activities and operations and expansion strategies.
