Translated title of the contribution: The relevance of the Federal Constitutional Court's ruling on commercial agents for contracts in new structures for production

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

The chapter analyses the effects of a Constitutional Court Ruling which for the first time recognised the obligation of national courts to ensure that fundamental rights are actually effective in horizontal relations, such as those between commercial agents and their principal. Specifically the ruling promoted a restrictive approach to contracts that tied the commercial agent to the principal through mechanisms such as a ban on competing with the principal after the agency had been dissolved. The article discusses potential applications to contracts in supply chains as well as marketing instruments such as franchising.
