Commercial Contracts » Manufacturing and Distribution

A well-drafted manufacturing or distribution agreement will not only set out your specific requirements but will also serve to protect your business.

Some businesses require products to be made specifically for their purposes.  If this is your business, or you are a manufacturer, it is vital that your business arrangements are documented in a clear, understandable agreement.  All of this highlights the importance of getting your contractual terms right.

Distributors are often viewed as a low-risk option to introduce products to new markets or territories. However, it is much more difficult to exercise any level of control over the retail channels than when selling through agents.  Distribution arrangements are also more likely to give rise to competition law issues.
