The commercial agency contract is definitely at the center of this quarter`s jurisprudence. The conditions and uses of the qualification (see ECJ 4 June 2020 above all) should not obscure the importance of the issues that otherwise arise in relation to its implementation. A judgment of the Court of Justice (…) The definition of a commercial agent contract for the purposes of Article 101 is the financial or commercial risk borne by the representative for the activities for which he has been appointed as representative by the contracting authority (see judgments in Case T-325/01 of 15 September 2005, Daimler Chrysler v Commission); Case C-217/05 of 14 December 2006, Confederación Espanola de Empresarios de Estaciones de Servicio v CEPSA and Case C-279/06, 11 September 2008, CEPSA Estaciones de Servicio SA v LV Tobar e Hijos SL.). In that regard, it is not necessary to assess whether the intermediary is acting for one or more contracting entities. Nor is the classification of their consent by the parties or national legislation an essential factor in that assessment. No ancillary agreements have been concluded under this contract.

The amendments necessary for their validity shall be those signed by both Contracting Parties. This request for a trainer may only be abandoned by written agreement. An example of the existence of an agency contract, cited in a 2006 court case, emerged when a tennis sponsor sued Venus and Serena Williams for non-participation. The sponsor claimed that his father, Richard Williams, had committed to participate in the tournament. The Williams sisters argued that their father did not have the authority to bind them to such an agreement. If her father hired the sisters to play, the court must decide whether there was a valid agency contract between the Williams sisters and their father. If not, they were probably not bound by his agreement under the Agency`s legislation. [needs to be updated] Within the European Union, there is legislation to provide some protection for staff, in particular the right to compensation in certain circumstances in the event of termination of an agency. The same is true in other parts of the world and in some countries it is necessary for a foreign manufacturer to designate as a representative a person or company that is a national of the country in which the agency will operate. An agency contract is entered into when a person, called an agent, is authorized by another person, the so-called principal, to act on behalf of the principal. .
