Nowadays, the result of an increasingly globalized and constantly changing economy, where competition is in fact, most of the time, operated on a global scale, it is up to the various economic agents to organize themselves, in order to achieve success in their respective areas of activity. In this sense, concession and agency contracts appear as ways of responding to the needs felt by the economy - and by the economic entities, in particular -, to satisfy its needs. Thus, within the scope of commercial concession contracts, we have an agreement between the parties, in which one of them undertakes to sell the products produced or distributed to the counterparty, obliging the latter to buy them and resell them to third parties, on their own and in a stable manner, in a given district. For its part, the agency also emerges as an alternative to mere individual, classic work, in which someone intends to work, opens activity, and starts his economic journey. Within the scope of the agency contract, we have a situation in which one of the parties undertakes to promote, on behalf of the other, the signing of contracts, in an autonomous and stable manner and by means of remuneration, thus providing competitive advantages to the other party which immediately undergo a greater knowledge of players in the market.
