Distribution Law

Distribution law is constantly undergoing new developments, driven by new commercial techniques that are developing on digital networks.

Exclusive distribution contracts

Exclusive distribution is a distribution method that guarantees territorial exclusivity for distributors.

Drafting of exclusive and selective distribution contracts

The company has the choice between defining a selective or exclusive distribution policy. JUSLAWS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY assists you in your choices and assists you in drafting your contracts.

Several types of distribution contracts can be considered, including:

Exclusive distribution agreements such as franchise, brand concession and affiliation commission agreements, whereby one company authorises another to exploit its distinctive signs and know-how within a network;

Selective distribution contracts consist for a manufacturer in selecting, on the basis of determined criteria, the distributors who will be exclusively authorised to distribute its products.

The organization of a selective distribution network must comply with the provisions of the Trade Competition Act B.E. 2560, which prohibit agreements whose object or effect is to prevent, restrict or distort competition on a market.

For example, a refusal to sell to an unauthorised distributor could be considered to have a restrictive effect on competition between distributors for the product of the brand concerned.

All distribution contracts are subject to complex rules that must not be ignored in order to avoid taking risks in the validation of these contracts.

JUSLAWS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY provides you with advice on distribution law and assists you in the drafting of your legal documents to enable you to be engaged by contracts that comply with the rules of contract law and the rules of distribution law while being adapted to your company's situation and future projects.
