A common method of entering new markets and selling in other countries is through a sales agent, also known as a manufacturer’s rep, a commission agent, and other names. Such agreements share many basic elements with domestic sales agent agreements, but more complicating factors arise at the border. There is more to this than meets the eye.

This CLE will address essential interests in drafting international sales agent agreements, including avoiding FCPA jail, holding onto your trademarks, staying out of foreign courts, and several other critical drafting considerations that will leave your client protected and in control. Real-life examples of suspense and intrigue included.
