Registration now open for the annual agentlaw seminar

October 26, 2012

Thursday 29 November 2012
6pm - 9pm

The last 12 months have seen our agentlaw team involved in a series of agency terminations – acting for either the principal or the agent.

Three client critical issues have emerged from cases with which we have been involved.  These form the basis of this year’s annual seminar.

In addition we welcome Oliver Segal QC. Recently Oliver acted successfully for the agent in Spectrum Agencies v Crocs Europe and at the time this invitation went to press was awaiting the decision of the Court of Appeal in this case

Our panel of experts will address:

  • “I was just doing a friend a favour”: How acting for a competitor can provide the principal with an easy way to terminate the agent. But why some principals have found it hard to do so.
  • The Power of Three: Using a master agent or a sub agent - the perfect ways to maximize returns or trouble cubed?
  • LOL – the decision in Spectrum Agencies v Crocs Europe: Why agent misconduct can not always be relied on by a principal.
  • The Inside Track: 5 key points to improving your chances in litigation

Chair: Stephen Sidkin, Partner and head of the agentlaw team at Fox Williams
Speakers: Rachel Cook, Associate in the agentlaw team at Fox Williams
Evie Meleagros, Associate in the agentlaw team at Fox Williams
Emma Roake, Associate in the agentlaw team at Fox Williams
Oliver Segal QC, Old Square Chambers
