The demands and challenges faced by business in the global market requires an adept and skilled professional to guide them through the myriad of regulation, and other concerns such as taxation, commercial agreements and protection of their products and or services. At our firm we have the tools and necessary skills to drive success for your business. Whether you are a small or large business and need to expand your market, by adopting measures such as entering into distribution agreements which are a low risk means of expanding business into new markets or territories, it is important that you know the various differences in legal and practical terms of between the appointment of an agent or a distributor.
There are also commercial and completion law issues that will be relevant in distribution arrangements for England and Wales and the European Union. Regulation (EU) 330/2010 on the Application of 101(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) concerns the arrangements for vertical agreements and concerted practices known as the Vertical Agreement Block Exemptions and VBAE.
The benefits and advantages of securing proper documentation and direct access to expert legal advice is not always the priority of market or sales negotiations teams, but once arrangements have been put into place without reviewing the impact this is likely to have to the business in the future it is at that stage too late to put right.
In addition to business owners, Directus acts for developers keen to seek advice on planning agreements, along with providing support to landlords who may encounter tenancy issues.
The firm has a solid understanding of both the minor and salient requirements for all stakeholders in the process.
