Abstract: This paper is informed by the need to highlight, clarify and evaluate key aspects of the Nigerian law of agency against the background of the increasing usage of the services provided by agents in the progressively complex commercial transactions in an era of globalization. The paper has found that contemporary business deals and contracts have increasingly depended on agency services and has, therefore, explored the attitude of Nigerian Courts to various significant aspects of agency relationship for the proper enlightenment of parties to contracts of agency who may be interested in doing business in Nigeria and on the international platform.
