Agency contract in Italy: the rights of the Agent.
Legal advice on Italian Contract Law.
Pursuant the Italian Civil Code, the agent is entitled to a commission For all the deals done during the contract, when the transaction has been concluded as a result of his intervention.
The agent is entitled to the commission also for the business of the principal with third parties acquired as customers by the agent, unless otherwise agreed.
The agent is entitled to a commission on deals made after the date of termination of the contract if the proposal was previously submitted to the principal or the agent or within a reasonable time from the date of termination of the contract and the conclusion is mainly attributable to the activity of the agent; in such cases the commission is due only to the previous agent, unless specific circumstances suggest to share the commission between the agents intervened.
Unless otherwise agreed, the commission must be paid to the agent from the date the principal has concluded the contract with the third parties. If the principal and the third party agree to not execute the contract, in whole or in part, the agent has right to a reduced commission, determined by the uses or by the court.
The agent must return commissions received only when the contract between the third party and the principal will not be running for reasons not attributable to the principal. Any clause against the agent is void.
