About this document

This is a basic agreement between manufacturer or trader and distributor. Drawn to prefer the manufacturer’s interest and protect his goods and his intellectual property. Although referred to as short, it is a full version, protecting the merchant’s products and business and providing an excellent framework for this important relationship.

This distribution agreement is for any business selling goods of any type but does not cover export provisions.

Whether you are the distributor or the merchant, there will be many areas where you would like the other of you to do things your way. As a result there will be a lot to negotiate. By setting everything down in a document like this before you start to talk, you have a head start. The agenda is yours.

This is a very comprehensive document, but as always with Net Lawman documents, you can reduce it easily to the exact terms you need.
