Franchising, Agency and Distribution Agreements

These areas are real potential legal minefields. Practical and sensible advice is needed before buying any franchising agreement, to ensure that the deal is fair to you and that you will receive value for money. We are experts upon the commercial agency regulations. It is imperative that you don’t appoint a commercial agent without taking legal advice first because it is most important that you understand the potential consequences and the potential extent of the compensation you may need to pay your agent if you ever wish to terminate that agency agreement, regardless of whether it is expressed to be a short term or trial arrangement or not.

Distribution agreements at first sight may appear more straightforward, but can easily fall within the scope of the commercial agency regulations. We strongly recommend that before you enter into any commercial agreements of these types, you consult us.

Supply Agreements

We can advise on commercial contracts and agreements: including supply chain and outsourcing agreements, licensing agreements, consultancy agreements with self-employed contractors and resale agreements.

Terms and Conditions of Sale

It is no exaggeration to say that these can be crucial to the success of any business. Do you realise that standard terms and conditions may not be binding on your customer? And are you sure that all reasonable eventualities are covered in clear and unambiguous language? We can advise how best to ensure that your terms and conditions are part of the contract, and we can draft conditions or review existing conditions to ensure that all reasonable eventualities are covered.
