Even Abogados is happy to inform you that a new edition on the series “Getting the Deal Through” has been recently published. This is the First Edition on Agency and Distribution. Our Partner Ignacio Alonso has drafted the chapter related to Spain.
The book contains a detailed questionnaire for 17 different jurisdictions and permits to have a first approach to the subject not only in those countries but also to compare the regulations in each of them.
It intends to solve the main questions on Agency and Distribution agreements. The questions try to discuss about the following: the possibility of establishing a local company to import products (laws governing the formation of entities, how foreign parties are treated); distribution structures with reference to the termination of the agreement, compensations, transfer of rights, confidentiality; non-competition covenants (with reference to resealing prices, for instance), restrictions on territories or customers; other general issues arising in this sort of agreements such as advertising provisions, intellectual property clauses, consumer protections issues, warranties, employment connected conflicts; and also governing and choice of forum and dispute resolution remedies.
