Covering, among other topics, the different types of agency, rights and duties of principal and agent, termination of the agreement and the claim for an indemnity on termination (Ausgleichsanspruch), this publication deals with practical aspects of German agency law. A clear layout and concrete examples enhance the practical use. An English translation of all the relevant sections of the German Commercial Code is annexed. The third edition covers all changes to the law until June 2004 and is the first edition to contain a brief comparison between the English and the German provisions. Together with the bilingual brochure "Agency Agreement Subject to German Law", the publication ensures that British principals and agents are well equipped to handle their German counterpart.
