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.

What is our approach? 

Our experienced team advises agents and principals. We will plan and execute a strategy to achieve your objectives in a cost-effective way.

To help clients manage the costs, our Dispute Resolution department offers a range of funding options. From traditional ‘pay by the hour’ arrangements to fixed fees in certain situations, our aim is to take the uncertainty out of the costs of litigating and, where appropriate, to share the risk with you.
