Commercial Agents and the Law is a practical approach to the modern law relating to commercial agency agreements, a complete guide to the workings of the relationship between commercial agents and their principal within its domestic and European context. This book is a complete guide to the workings of the relationship between commercial agents and their principal within its domestic and European context. The common law rules governing the relationship between principal and agent were pretty well established and well understood by English lawyers when, in 1993, the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations were enacted. The 1993 Regulations implement EC Directive 86/653 on self-employed commercial agents. The 1993 Regulations, like the EC Directives, are not, however, a complete code of rules governing the relationship, so they have to co-exist with the pre-existing common law rules. Both sets of principles therefore have to be applied.

This book provides a solid, accurate, and helpful practical reference to those seeking interim relief orders, or fighting them, and to show how they can be flexible to protect legal rights and achieve a cost effective practical result in litigation and arbitration. Litigation and any other form of dispute resolution is redundant if the winning party cannot enforce its judgment or award, or cannot hold the position between the parties in the interim before a decision is made. The theory of who should win needs to give way to the practical, but often complicated, task of ensuring that all relevant evidence is before the decision-maker (judge or arbitrator) and that the potential fruits of a favourable decision are not dissipated to leave the winner without financial or practical recourse. This practitioner's guide enables you to protect your client's position in litigation or arbitration, and ensures that success in court is not hampered by destruction of evidence, or does not lead to an expensive hollow victory because no funds or assets are available.

This work is an analysis of the law relating to limitation of actions. The authors have approached this work by setting out general matters such as the relationship between statutes of limitation and equitable principles on the matter of delay in instituting proceedings the generalities of accrual of a cause of action and the relationship between limitation periods and rules of pleading and procedures. The bulk of the text sets out the particular difficulties encountered in particular areas of civil litigation. For these purposes it includes specific sections on contracts and commercial law, tort, restitutionary claims and actions in respect of real and personal property. While these four broad areas cover the majority of limitation issues, the problem with the subject generally is that there is such a diverse range of statutory limitation periods that there are some limitations upon a legal remedy which do not readily fall into the four categories referred to above and are dealt with separately. Finally, it analyses the issues arising from the burgeoning case law on the matter of prevention, extension and postponement of limitation periods
