Distribution & Other Vertical Agreements

With the extensive regulatory expertise of our pan-European team, and our industry specialists providing their insights, we are ideally placed to advise on the balance between commercial gain and regulatory risk. But in helping protect our clients’ interests we go further than acting as a guide through complex regulation: we excel at translating expertise in conventional agreements into commercial opportunities. It’s another way we help our clients reach their commercial goals.

We advise on:

  • Issues that can arise from agency, distribution, franchising or licensing agreements
  • Structuring agreements to fall within exemptions or safe harbours provided by EU or national competition laws
  • Non-compete clauses, territorial and quantitative restrictions, pricing provisions and most-favoured customer clauses as well as issues arising from the rapidly expanding areas of internet selling
