Clendons on Licensing & Distribution Agreements

Clendons on Licensing & Distribution Agreements

Our Designers Institute Honorary Solicitor, James Carnie, Principal of Clendons, has prepared a White Paper on Licensing & Distribution Agreements.

"There are a variety of ‘types’ of licensing and distribution agreements, from a simply royalty sales agreement to a global licensing, manufacturing and distribution agreement. The legal issues arising from licensing and distribution arrangements can be complex and specialised, and an awareness of the potential risks and challenges is essential at the outset to avoid wasted investment and lost opportunities." (James Carnie)

This paper discusses some of the key issues arising in licensing and distribution agreements, both domestic and international, and identifies important terms and conditions that should be agreed by the distribution partners at the outset.

Download the full paper from our Resource page.
