Agency and Distribution Agreements Specialist agency and distribution agreements drawn up by solicitors in Milton Keynes

Agent and distributor networks can be an easy and cost-effective way of marketing and expanding a business. It is important however that both sides to the arrangement proceed on the basis of a clear agreement which facilitates profitable collaboration and minimises disagreements.

At Heald Solicitors in Milton Keynes, we draft agency and distribution agreements for businesses in a range of sectors. We also advise agents and distributors on the terms of agreements they have been offered and, where necessary, negotiate with the other side on a client’s behalf.

Agency agreements

An agent is responsible for making a contract between his principal, which is the business or individual he represents, and the principal’s customer or client. The agent will not buy goods himself but will receive a commission on the sales made.

There are different types of agency agreements giving different levels of authority to an agent. For example, they may be able to negotiate contracts on behalf of the principal. At Heald Solicitors, we have a strong commercial understanding and can advise you on the best type of agreement for your business to give you flexibility as well as a strong legal framework.

Distribution agreements

A distribution agreement gives a distributor the right to sell goods on behalf of a supplier in a specified geographical territory. The distributor will buy the goods themselves from the supplier, then sell them on at a higher price.

A distribution agreement will generally include geographical restrictions, restrictions on selling competing products, pricing details, a requirement to purchase a minimum amount each time, provisions regarding liability and details of how the agreement can be terminated.
