How We Can Help

As specialists in Commercial Agency Law we have significant experience in advising agents and principals.

We advise agents at all stages of their agency. We are frequently instructed by agents who are looking to enter into new agency agreements and require assistance with drafting an agency contract.  We also regularly act for agents who have had their agencies terminated and are seeking an indemnity or compensation payment under the Commercial Agents Regulations. Often difficulties arise during an agency and we are instructed to advise on issues relating to territory or accounts being brought “in-house”.

The solicitors in our team are happy to discuss your circumstances without obligation. In many cases we will offer to act pursuant to a “no win, no fee” agreement (also known as a conditional fee arrangement). We understand that an agent seeking indemnity or compensation upon termination of an agency has had a major source of income removed, and we are therefore open to exploring different methods of funding to assist you with your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

In the following we answer some of the frequently asked questions we are asked by both agents and principals. Find out more here.
