Commercial distribution and other commercial contracts

Building a network

Various collaborative forms exist for the development of a distribution network, each of which has its own legal framework that determines, among other things, the rights and obligations of both parties, the remuneration system, the termination options and any termination fees payable.

In addition, for certain collaborative forms, the party granting distribution rights is subject to a pre-contractual obligation to provide information about matters such as market conditions in the sector concerned and the distribution network already in place.

VSA’s Business Unit can give you advice and help with choosing the right collaborative form, drafting the collaboration agreement and settling legal and other disputes, relating to matters such as:
  • agency
  • concession
  • brokerage
  • Commission
  • franchising
  • other commercial contracts (such as license agreements, sponsorship agreements or independent service agreements)
