On Thursday 16 September 2010, CMS Derks Star Busmann and CMS Hasche Sigle, in cooperation with the Nederlands-Duitse Handelskamer (DNHK), will be organizing a seminar on the statutory conditions of a commercial representation in Germany.

During this seminar we will look in greater depth at the various options and aspects that need to be taken into account when concluding an agency agreement in accordance with German law. Attention will also be given to differences compared to Dutch law in this area, and practical examples will be given. After the session there will be the opportunity over drinks to ask questions.

This workshop is intended for management executives in the business sector who want to do business in Germany and are interested in a commercial representation or who have already started up one. A maximum of 25 persons may participate. Since part of the seminar will be presented in German, it is important that the participants have a basic knowledge of German.
