Annual Agent Law Seminar

November 13, 2014

At our seminar this year we are delighted to welcome Charles Shearman as our chairman for the evening and Paul Brown of AgentBase who will explain how the UK’s leading sales agent register can help your business. 

We will also investigate how claims under agency and distributorship agreements can be limited.  In addition we will consider how a principal or supplier can “over” draft an agreement - and the consequences that this may have.

Finally, we will explain how a recent European Court decision can result in you having, or being, distributor without knowing.

Our panel of experts will address: 

  • Minimising claims by agents and distributors
    How claims under agency and distributorship agreements can be limited by your agreement, by regulation and by practice.        
  • Shearman v Hunter Boot
    Sometimes agreements may be too well drafted - a close up look at the issues in the agency agreement in Shearman v Hunter Boot and other agency and distributorship agreements.
  • AgentBase
    How the UK’s leading sales agent register helps both agents and principals. Agents can plug into the best and latest UK agency opportunities. Principals can connect with the best sales agents and find that elusive recipe for success.
  • Surprise! - You have a distributor
    How a recent European court decision can result in you having a distributor (or being a distributor!) without knowing and the problems that this can mean for your business.
