Previously know as Guide to the Commercial Agents' Regulations This is the third edition of the leading work on European commercial agency, by two practising lawyers who have been involved in many of the leading cases since the adoption of the European Directive on self employed commercial agents.

Since the previous edition there have been a string of important cases which have helped to clarify previously confused issues but even now some of the case law remains unsatisfactory.

In this third edition of their work, Randolph and Davey have once again drawn out the consistent threads in the case law to predict the likely approach of the courts, both at UK and EU level, to those issues which still remain undecided. The approach adopted in the earlier editions of tackling difficult issues head on and suggesting practical answers to practitioners has once again been carried through into the third edition.

As well as including references to all the relevant cases in the text, the work now includes a new chapter on the valuation of businesses by Dr Ruth Bender of the Cranfield School of Management, as well as an up to date version of the chapter on French law by Dr Severine Saintier of Liverpool University.

These two chapters are particularly helpful given the importance of business valuation to the way recent cases have been decided and the willingness of many judges to take into account the approach in other Member States in applying the Regulations.
