Distributor Agreement


Overview

A Distributor Agreement is a written Agreement between a business and its Distributor for purchase of products for resale in geographic locations specified. Through a Distributor Agreement, a business appoints and grants Distributor the exclusive right to sell and distribute its Products to customers located in certain territories. A Distributor Agreement states its term, each party’s obligations and usually includes detailed price lists, warranty terms, payment information, confidentiality terms, data protection terms, conditions of delivery, indemnity terms, intellectual property rights, limitation of liability and other legal terms and conditions such as jurisdiction and dispute resolution.

The basic elements of a distribution agreement include the term (time period for which the contract is in effect), terms and conditions of supply and the sales territories covered by the agreement (regions within the country and/or other territories).

The manufacturer or vendor must also determine whether the distribution agreement will be exclusive or nonexclusive. In an exclusive agreement, the specified distributor will be the sole distributor with the right to sell the product within a particular geographic region or within multiple regions. If the arrangement is nonexclusive, the manufacturer or vendor may supply other distributors, sometimes competing in the same market.

A Distributor Agreement is essential to protect the rights of both the business and Distributor entering into the Agreement. Sabkuch Legal is one of the best in the domain of drafting and reviewing Distributor Agreements.
