Termination and damages in Dutch agency law

According to Dutch agency law, summary termination (which must be immediately communicated to the other party) is permitted and may be contractually provided for, but damages may be due to the terminated party if there is no justifiable urgent cause for the termination. The amount of damages may be substantial and the Dutch courts have wide discretion in this matter. Termination may also be effected by court decision at the request of either party to the agency agreement.
