That is why, in the design phase of the agreement, the idea of considering a conciliation clause seems to be a good idea. It will be an additional and useful tool to resolve their disputes and an opportunity to get extra time in the event that the courts are invited to intervene. The case concerned a former Renault agent and his lawyer, who himself succeeded a subsidiary of Renault. Indeed, in 2009, Renault had sold a subsidiary to an independent dealer who had kept Renault`s agents, Renault and Dacia agents in the contractual territory since 1980. The new (…) Companies that appoint commercial agents should, following a recent judgment, carefully consider the effects provisions in their agency agreement to determine whether compensation or compensation is applicable in the event of termination. The concept of assistant responsibility is often used in legal circles, but more simply means the principle that a person may be rendered compelled by acts of another detention. He often intervenes in agency situations. If the Agency is involuntary, the courts will consider what the nature of the Agency is as a construction issue and will focus on whether or not another person has been empowered to act and may decide whether or not it is reasonable to set up a legal agency; it cannot always be cut clearly and can give surprising results. An agency contract can be terminated automatically if the task is completed, if the contract has been thwarted, in the event of death, insolvency or madness. The characterization of a contract as a commercial agency, the key to access to protection status under the 1991 Act, is the focus of our attention this month. In this case, a supplier and a distributor had entered into two contracts on the same day.
The first, a commercial (…) The simplest prevention is to carefully draft a written contract and have been adapted to business needs and to try to protect against high potential risks. If it is too late and an agency has been set up, it is essential to provide early legal advice before termination, otherwise the agent may be entitled to a high compensation and may claim a breach of contract. This list is not exhaustive. However, if the representative is responsible for one or more of the above risks or costs, the agreement between the representative and the client is not referred to as an agency agreement. The issue of risk should be assessed on a case-by-case basis and not on the basis of the economic reality of the situation and not on the legal form. For practical reasons, risk analysis can begin with the assessment of contract-specific risks. If the agent presents specific risks to the contract, it is sufficient to conclude that the agent is an independent distributor. On the contrary, if the representative does not take specific risks to the contract, it will be necessary to continue the analysis by assessing the risks associated with market-specific investments. If the representative is not faced with contract-specific risks and risks related to market-specific facilities, it may be necessary to take into account the risks associated with other necessary activities in the same product market.
