We can also assist you with creating distribution agreements. A Distribution Agreement is a legal document between a supplier and a distributor. The supplier may be the manufacturer of the goods or the distributor reselling another's goods. There are exclusive distribution agreements and non-exclusive distribution agreements. An exclusive distribution agreement is when the supplier agrees to sell their goods exclusively to the distributor. This comes with terms and conditions often containing sales performance requirements.
It is very important that Distribution Agreements contain sufficient detail to ensure your operations are protected.
We can draft guarantees for you to use with any directors of a company that you are entering into a contract with, so that you can ensure the company will fulfill its obligations under the contract, such as any obligations to make payment.
We can also draft restraint of trade clauses and non-solicitation clauses to include in employment contracts and clauses that sufficiently protect your intellectual property from internal theft by employees or contractors.
- Restraint of trade clauses are clauses in a contract that restrain employees or contractors from engaging in a particular trade for a certain period of time and within a geographic area.
- Non-solicitation clauses are clauses in a contract that prevent an employee or contractor from pursuing clients of the employer or principal’s business.
