Agency Agreement Kuwait

According to Article 274 of the GA "Is the agreement of the contractual agency concluded in writing, if it concerns in particular the limits of the agency, the remuneration of the agent and the field of his activity, in addition to the duration of the contract, if it is limited, and the brand of the contractual goods, if any. Kuwaiti law protects an agent in the event of unfair termination of his services by the client. The instructing party shall not have the right to terminate the contract without material breach by the contractor. However, the client would be required to pay the agent substantial compensation if the agent has terminated exclusively the commercial agent contract. In addition, the new law also provides that, when an agency contract is automatically renewed, the parties have not expressly terminated that contract. In addition, the intermediary shall have the right to claim adequate compensation if the contracting authority has refused to renew an agency contract at the end of its term. However, the Tribunal shall authorize compensation only if the contractor is not negligent in the performance of its obligations under the commercial agent contract. However, the Commercial Agents Act also obliges agents and traders to continue their obligations with regard to the supply, maintenance and repair of the goods of the instructing party for a period of six months from the expiry of their contract as a commercial agent or until the appointment of a new representative or trader, which is the earliest date. The new law also defined the concepts of franchisees and licensees in the context of the definition of commercial representation. Therefore, franchisees and licensees are also treated as commercial agents and are expressly subject to obligations and rights under Kuwaiti law.

Article 282 "(1) Where the contract is concluded for a fixed period and the contracting entity decides not to renew it at the end of its initial term, it shall be required to pay the agent an appropriate indemnity, which shall be determined by the Tribunal even in the event of an adversarial agreement. In the event that the contracting entity terminates the intermediation contract and the contractor does not breach its obligations, the procuring entity shall be obliged to make good to the contractor for the damage caused by the termination. . . .
