Distribution Law

Companies that move goods and services to market have unique needs that only an attorney with experience representing such channel players can provide.

The law that governs market channels, including the interaction between channel players, is a complex web of both state and federal laws, ranging from general principles of contract law to antitrust and trademark laws.  Jerry advises and represents suppliers, dealers, distributors, retailers, and franchisees from start-up through maturity, in areas such as:

  • Start-up and/or incorporation
  • Drafting and negotiating of contracts with other channel players, including Distribution or Dealer Agreements
  • General contract disputes with customers and other channel players
  • Product liability and negligence claims
  • Trademark and licensing issues
  • Disputes arising out of the termination of Distribution or Dealer Agreements
  • Post-termination inventory repurchase disputes
