CAVEAT: Beendigung von US-Vertragshändlerverträgen

18.07.2010562 Mal gelesen

Nachfolgend finden Sie ein Musterklausel, die Sie in der einen oder anderen Form (und nach finalem Check mit dem anwendbaren bundesstaatlichen Recht)  in den Vertrag mit Ihrem US-Händler aufnehmen sollten, um das Risiko von Ansprüchen nach Vertragsbeendigung zu reduzieren; es gibt genug Fälle, wo Händler Schadensersatzansprüche androhen, weil sie in z.B. Druckmaterialen, Messen etc investiert hätten und all dieses Invest nun aufgrund Beendigung nutzlos seien.

No Damages For Termination or Expiration. NEITHER XXX NOR DISTRIBUTOR SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, ON ACCOUNT OF THE TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF THIS AGREEMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION. DISTRIBUTOR WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO RECEIVE ANY COMPENSATION OR REPARATIONS ON TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF THIS AGREEMENT UNDER THE LAW OF THE TERRITORY OR OTHERWISE, OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT. Neither XXX nor Distributor will be liable to the other on account of termination or expiration of this Agreement for reimbursement or damages for the loss of goodwill, prospective profits or anticipated income, or on account of any expenditures, investments, leases or commitments made by either XXX or Distributor or for any other reason whatsoever based upon or growing out of such termination or expiration. Distributor acknowledges that

(i)                  Distributor has no expectation and has received no assurances that any investment by Distributor in the promotion of XXX Products will be recovered or recouped or that Distributor will obtain any anticipated amount of profits by virtue of this Agreement, and

(ii)                Distributor will not have or acquire by virtue of this Agreement or otherwise any vested, proprietary or other right in the promotion of XXX Products or in "goodwill" created by its efforts hereunder.

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS SECTION HAS BEEN INCLUDED AS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR XXX TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT XXX WOULD NOT HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS AGREEMENT BUT FOR THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AS SET FORTH HEREIN.
