Distribution agreements are legal contracts between a manufacturer/ supplier and a distributor, which outline the terms of the distribution of goods or services. These agreements typically define the responsibilities of each party, the pricing and payment terms, the scope of the distribution, and the duration of the agreement.

These agreements can set the foundation for powerful partnerships that allow your business to enter new markets, reduce marketing costs and increase sales. Likewise for the distributor, it gives them access to new and diverse ranges of products.

We ensure that these distribution agreements are written in a legally-sound way that protects the interests of both parties. If you already have one of these agreements in place and are in the middle of a dispute, then we’ll work on your behalf to resolve the issue whilst ensuring that your finances and reputation are protected.

Create a Strong Foundation

Distribution agreements take trust. As a supplier, you must trust that the distributor will care for your product, protect your brand and pay on time. As a distributor, you need to ensure that the products you acquire are faultless, and you are not infringing on any intellectual property laws or data protection issues.

A legally compliant written agreement is a strong foundation on which you base this deal, a deal which can have huge financial benefits for your business.
