Many states, including Wisconsin, impose statutory restrictions on the kinds of changes a business can make to its relationships with certain kinds of distributors. Companies looking to end a distributor relationship, amend territories or materially alter the terms of a distributor relationship should take heed of these requirements, as the penalties for violations can be very severe.

KMK has extensive experience prosecuting claims of violations of the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law and other similar state laws, and defending claims brought against our clients under these laws.

If you are a business that is considering making substantial changes to your distributor relationships or are faced with a distributor law claim, or if you are a distributor that has been subject to a termination or other major change in the relationship, call us at (414) 962-5110 to help you navigate the often nuanced requirements of fair dealership laws.
