THE INDISPENSABLE TOOL FOR DRAFTING AND NEGOTIATING INTERNATIONAL AGENCY AND DISTRIBUTION CONTRACTS
The International Distribution Institute (IDI) is an association established in 2004, which deals with matters involving international distribution law.
The main activity of IDI is to provide, through an Internet website (www.idiproject.com) all the information on agency, exclusive/selective distribution, franchising and other similar contracts (as well as other related matters, such as applicable law, arbitration, jurisdiction and recognition of foreign decisions), which may be needed by lawyers and practitioners who draft and negotiate international contracts of this type.
The website is particularly suitable for in-house lawyers, who frequently need information about foreign law and practice regarding distribution, particularly when they have to draft and negotiate contracts with foreign parties without involving a local lawyer (as is frequently the case with smaller contracts). At the same time, IDI offers the opportunity, through its country experts, to get in contact with highly specialized lawyers in the various countries.
Particularly, IDI organises each year a conference on topical issues regarding agency, distribution and franchising contracts.
Moreover, pursuant to the IDI/ECLA partnership agreement signed in October 2011, IDI undertook to organize seminars and conferences in cooperation with the ECLA National Associations on distribution issues agreed with the relevant National Association, taking into account the specific needs and interests of its members. All company lawyers who will subscribe to the IDI website after having attended to one of those seminars, will be granted a 50% discount on the subscription fee for the first year and a 25% discount for the following years, for the whole duration of the agreement.

From JAMS: “In-house counsel has been the driving force behind much of the change in the provision of commercial legal services. Taking advantage of market liberalization in certain jurisdictions and more selective use of legal technology, corporate counsel have delivered impressive efficiency savings while continuing to add value to their company's bottom line.
Alternative dispute resolution has been part of that trend. More effective, more cost-efficient, and more enduring resolutions are both a responsible use of shareholder capital, and a more commercial solution to the unavoidable difficulties of doing business at home and abroad. As in the United States, European corporate counsel are increasingly active both leading and guiding parties to use alternatives to litigation, and in appointing appropriate mediators and arbitrators.
JAMS International asked companies what assistance they needed to effect speedier, cheaper outcomes to disputes across all territories. The answers were clear: experienced, respected mediators and arbitrators; people who understand their business; people who speak their language, understand their culture, traditions, and values; people who know local law, but have international experience. And finally, people who can resolve disputes anywhere in the world.
At JAMS International, we have those people, and service levels to match.

On 31 March 2017 ECLA had its Annual General Assembly in Rome, where the national association AIGI acted as an excellent host. The agenda of the meeting contained its usual topics, such as the annual accounts, communication, etc. There was also an intensive discussion on the goals, aspirations and future of ECLA, for which the new President Jonathan Marsh earlier made an appeal to the national associations. The outcome of the discussions, which took place in workgroups, will form a solid basis for further discussions later in the year. Stephan Barthe (Spain) was elected as new secretary of the Executive Board. The topic of young lawyers in AIGI was presented by a young member of AIGI, followed by an interesting discussion.
