Agency (3rd Edition): Law and Principles

Roderick Munday


Questions of agency regularly arise in the work of commercial practitioners. This book provides a reference guide to the main principles of agency law, including detailed explanation of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations of 1993. Analysis of case law is combined with a practical approach to the law which accurately reflects modern commercial realities, considering the application of agency principles according to particular classes of agents operating in the major commercial sectors. It includes discussion of the actual authority and apparent authority of an agent, agency of necessity, warranty of authority and ratification, looking at the legal relations between principal and both agent and third parties, as well as the relations between agent and third party, sub-agency, and termination of agency. This book emphasizes contemporary case law, and has been fully revised and updated in response to significant recent developments.
