Chevassus-Marche (Heirs of) v Groupe Danone and others (Case C-19/07) [2008] WLR (D) 2

“On the proper interpretation of art 7(2) (first indent) of Directive 86/653 on self-employed commercial agents, a commercial agent entrusted with a specific geographical area did not have the right to a commission for transactions concluded by customers belonging to that area without any action, direct or indirect, on the part of the principal.
The First Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Communities so ruled on a reference for a preliminary ruling by the Cour de cassation, France.”
