A Practical Guide from Start-up to Global Success
Chapter 11: Before signing an agency or distribution agreement
Agents and distributors are essential to the success of the fashion industry. They enable new brands to grow and to reach new markets around the world. It is therefore important to understand the difference between the two as well as the associated legal risks, particularly in a European context. This chapter looks at the impact of the Commercial Agents Directive as well as specific agreements such as selective distribution agreements. It also considers the impact of e-commerce and in particular, the ability that some luxury businesses may have to restrict the sale of their good on popular marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon.
