Agency agreement breached by terminating party
The client was a commercial agent to a large supplier of top of the range car parts. An agency agreement was terminated by the supplier giving rise to contractual claims for ongoing commission and an entitlement to compensation under the Commercial Agency Regulations.
Richard Gore and the Dispute Resolution team were responsible for collating expert evidence in support of the compensation element of the claim, instructing experts and corresponding with solicitors acting for the supplier who disputed the amount being claimed. They drew on their extensive knowledge and experience of mediation and litigation, providing one point of contact throughout the process.
As the case involved the distribution of very expensive parts to top of the range car manufacturers. The value of the client’s business at the point of termination was crucial to the case, as it created drastically different valuations from the parties which had to be bridged to reach settlement.
The team submitted a claim for commission and compensation and moved the matter to mediation where it was settled. They used their knowledge of Commercial Agency Regulations and the experience to negotiate the matter successfully to come to a conclusion.
The matter was eventually settled at mediation, and the client was delighted with the outcome.
“Richard Gore represented me in my claim against a former principal under the Commercial Agency Regulations. His calm head and clear thinking both in correspondence and at the mediation, where the matter was resolved, was indispensable and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.” – Anonymous
