What is an Endorsement Agreement?

An endorsement agreement is a contract between two parties that allows a business to use the other party's image, likeness, name, and reputation to market a product or service. In addition, an endorsement agreement outlines the terms and conditions that will guide both parties on what is expected of their business partnership.

Endorsement agreements often cover things like exclusivity or whether another company can claim the endorsement, compensation of the endorser, and appearances and other expectations of the endorser. Companies will use agreements like these to ensure that whether the endorser is an individual or another company, they will follow all the terms agreed to; otherwise, they are held liable for action against them.
