How to get a national domain name without a branch establishment in that country?

As you probably know, domain names are already part of our lives because we get all the news via specific networks.

Usually, when you buy a country code domain name (.us, .uk, .fr etc.) the National Registry requires that the owner has an operational office in that country.

We recently represent one of our Swiss Clients who has the headquarter in Switzerland but sells his products in many other countries in EU or USA.

Our Client needs to have national domain names in all the countries he sells his products but it is impossible to have operational offices all over Europe.

Our Client assigned the national domain name to each official distributor in each country.  To avoid any IP infringement we are currently working on undertaking agreements through which our client will keep safe all his IP rights concerning the domain names.
