The contribution by Lawyer Stefania Raviele will deal with commercial agency contracts, starting with a discussion of the sources governing this matter and focusing on the regulatory provisions, describing, with reference to case histories, the features that differentiate this type of contract from a business procurement contract. This contract will be examined, as well as its requirements and elements that can be regulated and included, such as, for instance, probation periods or the inclusion of terms or, moreover, exclusivity rights and non-compete clauses, focusing in particular on the contract management and modifications. From a practical and case-law standpoint, the subject matter of unilateral modifications, limitations and the ius variandi contractual discipline will be described, with a focus on the applicability to this type of contract of the provisions laid down in the Italian Jobs Act for self-employed professionals. The Lawyer will also deal with the parties’ rights and obligations and the reasons for the termination of commercial agency contracts.
