Areas of Expertise - Agency Law
Agency law involves disputes that arise when one party (the agent) is authorized to act on behalf of another (the principal), typically when creating legal relationships with a third party. Disputes involving agency law often involve employees acting as agents of their employer or brokers acting for a client, but these issues can arise from any situation in which a person has express, implied or even apparent authority to act on behalf of another.
