When an agency contract does not specify the applicable law

Subject: Selling and marketing/Agents and distributors

Source: British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII)

GDE LLC (formerly Anglia Autoflow North America Llc) & another v Anglia Autoflow Limited [2020] EWHC 105 (Comm)

High Court; London Circuit Commercial Court

Hearing dates: 19, 20, 27 November 2019, 16, 17 December 2019

Legaleze comment: this recent case arose from a dispute whether English law or the law of Ontario, Canada applied to an agency contract. Expensive High Court litigation would have been avoided had the parties concluded a properly drafted contract including a clear choice of law clause.
