Franchise Law Practice:
Since its establishment, and throughout the region, Arias & Muñoz has assisted its clients in franchising matters. By participating in giving legal advice to multinational corporations in business sectors – such as hotels and resorts, and food and clothing – our law firm has acquired considerable expertise in areas that are continually expanding throughout the globalized business world. Our attorneys are constantly increasing and practicing their knowledge on the technical aspects of franchise law through attending specialized seminars and conferences.
Arias & Muñoz is unique in Central America, for it operates as a single firm rather than as an alliance of firms and currently has eight, fully-integrated offices in six countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. It has become, today, not only a solid, but also an innovative legal firm that continues to spread its influence throughout the region.
For clients, choosing the right legal partner is key. Arias & Muñoz and its dedicated lawyers, with their core experience over a broad range of practice areas and industries, unlock the region’s intricacies and subtle differences in laws for them. The firm is truly a one-step, one-stop law firm offering clients the benefits and demonstrated advantages that come from having all their regional businesses served from one, fully integrated base.
