Franchising, Agency and Distribution

Agency agreements provide opportunities. In order to create constructive forms of cooperation and lasting values, it is important to understand the commercial needs of every enterprise in a distribution chain and to consider them on the basis of the possibilities and limitations of the law.

We have solid expertise on distribution, franchising and the law of agency in general. We have comprehensive experience with preparing, negotiating and providing advice on all types of commercial agency agreements. Several of our lawyers also have experience as in-house lawyers in the manufacturing industry. In addition, we have long experience with dispute resolution between principals and agents.

We help to establish the agency arrangement, choose a form of cooperation and contract, prepare the actual contract and terminate the arrangement if necessary. We also provide guidance through the somewhat complicated rules of competition on the area and assist in licensing of all types of rights, for example design, trademark, patent and copyrights. Through practical and simple solutions that clearly define the terms of contract, we secure a good working relationship for the parties.
