Basic Distribution Agreement Checklist


A comprehensive checklist of issues that should be considered in establishing any distribution arrangement.

While useful for the preparation of definitive distribution agreements, this checklist is also a useful tool to consult during negotiation of a distribution arrangement to assure that the parties address the key issues.

This checklist is designed for use by business principals as well as legal professionals.

Heads up! Business principals should recognize that commercial agreements viewed as "routine" - supply chain, distribution, franchise, real estate leases, etc. - often do not receive the attention they deserve. As common as such agreements may be, they are often the most valuable assets of an enterprise, as well as - unfortunately - sources of material liabilities and disputes.
