Compensation on termination of agencies

Termination of Agency

Termination of Agency

Vero Consulting are experienced at helping commercial agents receive the compensation due to them when the agency ends or is terminated.  We work with agents and their lawyers to ensure they maximise the compensation they receive.

When an agency ends or is terminated, an agent often has to ask the principal for compensation.  We know how intimidating it can be to secure the compensation due when faced with a substantial and well-resourced principal. We are experienced in supporting agents and their legal teams through this challenging process.

We work with the agents and their legal teams to look at their options and help them receive all the compensation due to them. We assist with quantifying an agent’s compensation claim, preparing reports, during negotiations, mediations and throughout this challenging process.

My lawyers recommended me to approach Charles to help quantify the compensation due to me under the Commercial Agents Regulations 1993. I found him to be very knowledgeable about how compensation should be quantified and was very supportive throughout the negotiations and in reaching settlement.

His quiet confident manner assured me that I was in safe hands throughout!

I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Reported case – The Software Incubator Ltd v Computer Associates UK Ltd [2016] EWHC 1587 (QB)

Charles Lazarevic was appointed by solicitors acting for the agent to quantify the compensation due under Regulation 17 of The Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993 on the assumption that software is within the scope of the Directive. The principal claimed there was no loss but on hearing both experts the court awarded compensation of £475,000. On 28 March 2019 the Supreme Court decided to refer two questions on the meaning of “goods” in the Directive to the CJEU, which is likely to provide a landmark decision.
