Agency, Distribution And Franchise Agreements
Dealing with a contract dispute can not only be stressful, but highly disruptive. Whether you are an individual, entrepreneur, company or partnership, going through a disagreement of this type can be complex and time consuming. This is why it is important you are able to speak to legal experts who can provide all the guidance you need to emerge from a dispute with the result you are after. Contract disputes can occur in different types of agreements and it is important to have an understanding of how each one functions.
It is also important when considering how best to market, sell or distribute your products to be aware of the difference, in legal and practical terms, between appointing an agent and a distributor.
Preparation of an agent agreement or distributor agreement helps focus on the practical and commercial issues needed to be considered when entering into such a relationship. A distribution agreement is used when a supplier has no presence or representation in a particular market or country. It is essential to have an agreement between the supplier and the distributor so that the terms between the parties are clear.
An agency agreement is formed when one person, called the agent, is authorized by another person, called the principal, to act on the principal’s behalf. A principal who assigns agency to an agent is creating a legal relationship with the agent. Agency agreements are important for businesses to understand because you may encounter them whenever you ask a vendor, accountant, lawyer or another third-party to conduct business on your behalf.
A franchise agreement is a license that establishes the rights and obligations of the franchisor and the franchisee. This agreement is designed to protect the franchisor’s intellectual property (IP) and ensure consistency in how each of its licensees operates under its brand.
