An agency is an inde­pend­ent trader that con­tinu­ally works for a con­tract­or and that facil­it­ates or con­cludes busi­ness on their behalf. A mul­ti­tude of prob­lems can arise both in the exe­cu­tion and the ter­min­a­tion of a com­mer­cial agent relationship.

Our firm offers you advice on the entire area of com­mer­cial agency law and has the expert­ise to cal­cu­late claims for com­pens­a­tion accord­ing to § 89 b of the Ger­man Com­mer­cial Code (HGB). Where neces­sary, we will rep­res­ent you in enfor­cing your claims and in defend­ing against alleged coun­ter­claims before the respons­ible courts.
