New to Agency Law & Principles, Fourth Edition By Roderick Munday:

  • Discussion of the impact of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 on interpretation of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993 by English courts
  • Examination of liability under Hedley Byrne amended to reflect the decision reached in Playboy Club London Ltd v Banca Nazionale del Lavoro SPA (2018)
  • Analysis of termination of agency updated to reflect the introduction of the Guardianship (Missing Persons) Act 2017
  • New section on conflict of laws and applicable laws considering National Bank of Kazakhstan v Bank of New York Mellon (2020)

In order to apply agency principles to specific classes of agents working in the main commercial sectors, forensic analysis of case law is combined with a practical approach to the law that accurately reflects contemporary commercial realities. Real and apparent authority of an agent, agency of necessity, lack of authority, and ratification are some of the topics covered. Also covered are the legal relationships between a principal and an agent, as well as those between an agent and a third party, sub-agency, and termination of agency.

This fourth edition has been revised to reflect all relevant new case law and legislation while also taking into account how it may affect the fundamentals of agency law. The effects of the European Withdrawal Act (2018) on how the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations of 1993 are interpreted by English courts are taken into consideration.
