Disputes over IP issues can be dealt with in the treaty and can often be resolved in court, but it is also worth explaining the problems to the officer in order to avoid the problems that arise in the first place. For example, it is not uncommon for agents to apply for trademark registration (whether in an erroneous but real attempt to preserve the rights of the client or for a less virtuous reason) or continue to manufacture goods under the client`s mark and sell them in the territory after the end of the contract. It is therefore useful to inform the agents of the rights of the client in matters of intellectual property and confidential information, the measures necessary to maintain and protect these rights, and how these rights should be protected when the agreement expires. In addition, in the event of a threat from a third party, the agent or distributor is generally threatened, which may raise fears in the contractual relationship. The agency agreement must first be registered with the ded (Department of Economic Development). The registration of the contract is essential to its validity. In general, the rules on agency relations are contained in Federal Law 18/1981 (Trade Agency Act) in the version of Federal Acts 14/1998, 18/1981 and 2/2010. The legislation refers to a broad approach of the commercial agency, which applies to both agency relations as well as distribution and franchising relations. Article 1 of the Commercial Agencies Act states that “the commercial agency refers to the representation of the client by an agent for the purpose of distributing, selling, displaying or delivering a good or service in the state, for a commission or profit.” If the issue of dismissal is not dealt with satisfactorily in the text of the agency agreement, a client may remain in a reckless position of having to continue with a representative with whom the business relationship has been broken or if he is unable to continue with a new agent. The Claimant (a commercial agent registered in the United Arab Emirates Commercial Agents Register) entered into an agency agreement with the respondent. The parties agreed that the applicant would market, distribute and sell the respondent`s products within the United Arab Emirates. The United Arab Emirates allows distribution contracts to include a provision prohibiting such a transfer of distribution rights.

Contracts may include clauses limiting the officer`s right to delegate liability to another party; a violation of this provision may constitute a “substantial breach” of the agent, which would allow the client to terminate the contract. It is also customary for contracts to contain clauses for the appointment of negotiators that allow representatives to appoint negotiators when the client has approved it in writing and the representative is held responsible for any compensation to the negotiators. The appointment of a representative under the relevant legislation of the commercial agency has the advantage that the client has an agent who may require the law enforcement agencies to act against the importation or supply of genuine products put on the market in the territory without the consent of the client. This can give the principal more control over the price he calculates for his goods in each country in the region. However, this benefit generally does not predominate over commercial risks (i.e. protection against dismissal and associated risks) when the agent is designated under these conditions for the territory concerned. While this may not be useful for each country to minimize the risk of an agent benefiting from protection from termination (and associated risks), the master may: The effect of registering a commercial agency agreement by LAE Federal Law No. 18 of 1981 (the Commercial Agency Act) with the Uae Ministry of Economy is regulated as the commercial agent has exclusive market.
