7KBW’s Howard Bennett writes book on principles of agency law

7KBW has announced the publication of the Principles of the Law of Agency by Prof Howard Bennett, published by Hart Publishing.

The work provides an examination of the principles of agency law, exploring the rules of attribution, the rights and obligations arising within the agency relationship, the impact of agency in the fields of contract and tort and the termination of an agent’s authority.

Throughout the book, full consideration is given to the issues arising under the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993. The discussion is informed not only by common law authority, but also by international soft law instruments and the Restatement of the Law, Third: Agency.
