Agency Law is a regularly updated practical work on the law of agency, with the added benefit of precedent material. Throughout the work, the emphasis is on minimising the risks inherent in commercial agency agreements. Its in-depth explanation shows how to protect the relevant parties and how to resolve problems quickly and easily. Every type of agency relationship is covered, with all the necessary contract and commercial law included, together with related commercial activities which do not fit the orthodox definition of agency, such as franchising. It includes:-

  • The general principles of agency law including the relationship of 'principal' and 'agent'
  • Specific relationships examining each kind of commercial agency agreement dealing with directors, solicitors, estate agents, insurance brokers, travel agents, employment agents, and advisers, insolvency practitioners, and general commercial agents and their clients
  • Key precedents
  • A section on Commercial Agency Regulations
  • New sections on Agency & the Media and Recent Cases...
