Agents & distributors
We frequently advise our clients on agency and distribution. Often this involves expansion into new territories and we are able to draw on our resources internationally when it comes to advising on the best set up.
In Europe this often involves clearing the agency agreement in relation to the local implementation of the EU directive on commercial agents.
As for distributorship, there is generally more freedom to agree the contract, but in some countries distributors are treated almost as agents, so it is important to have knowledge of the local laws where you are trading.
We also assist our clients when it comes to terminate an agency or distributorship.
