We are a leading firm in the field of Commercial Agency (sometimes called Sales Agency). We have substantial experience in acting for principals and for agents in:
advising as to the suitability of commercial agency as a mechanism for buying or selling sales and marketing services and as to the alternatives
drafting, negotiating and advising on the terms of commercial agency contracts
advising on and dealing with claims arising on termination, and their defence, including claims pursuant to the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993, for compensation, for failure to give adequate notice, and for commissions arising prior to and after the date of termination

We regularly deal with claims where the agent is seeking compensation in excess of £100,000. In appropriate cases, we may be prepared to act on a conditional fee basis.
