Our business contracts and commercial law services
A distribution agreement typically involves an arrangement whereby a manufacturer of goods appoints another organisation to distribute its products in a specific territory, and is used to record the agreed terms and conditions applicable to both parties.
When entering into a distribution agreement it is important to have the document drafted and/or reviewed by a solicitor, as well as receiving legal advice on the terms and conditions. For example, the agreement should typically detail the rights that the distributor has when selling the supplier’s products, such as whether they are non-exclusive, exclusive, or sole rights.
Our specialist lawyers at Rollits can support clients to put in place distribution agreements that reflect their requirements and goals, as well as ensuring legal protection.
An agency agreement involves a working relationship between a principal (typically the originator of a service or product) and an agent, who is assigned to act on the principal’s behalf in connection with the promotion and/or sale of that service or product. Typically the agent receives a commission for their activities, whilst the principal maintains control over the transactions with end customers.
These agreements are used to establish the terms and conditions of the commercial relationship, ensuring that both parties understand how their arrangement will work and what their specific responsibilities are.
