An agent is a person or organisation who acts on your behalf. For instance, you may use agents to negotiate sales of your products but the contract is still between you and the customer. If the intermediary is the seller, they are not an agent at all, but more likely a distributor.

What protection is offered to agents?

Under the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993, agents have significant legal protection. This means that terminating an agency agreement can have serious consequences in terms of having to compensate the agent for loss of the agency and therefore you should take legal advice both before creating an agency relationship and certainly before terminating one.
