Обоюдное (двойное) представительство в российском праве: проблемы допустимости и снижение рисков сторон
This article analyses situations where a representative performs transactions on behalf of a principal with another person he also represents (dual representation (agency), double mandate). Economic considerations provided in this article show that dual representation implies risks for the principals, including those related to representative’s conflict of interests and abuse opportunities. At the same time, given its positive effects, dual representation should not be subject to general prohibition. As a matter of recommendation, the article provides a number of instruments for mitigating the parties’ risks in relation to dual representation.
