יחסי שליחות מתקיימים כאשר צד א’ – השולח, המייפה את כוחו של צד ב’ – השלוח, לפעול בשמו ובעבורו. כך לדוגמא, במקום בו אייל לא מעוניין כי ידעו כי הוא בעל מניות בחברה, הוא מבקש מדודי להחזיק את מניותיו בעבורו.
מוסד השליחות הוסדר בישראל במסגרת חוק השליחות, תשכ”ה-1965 (להלן: “החוק”) . החוק קובע בין היתר כי כל פעולה משפטית שאין הכרח מהותי או חובה על-פי דין לבצעה באופן אישי, כשרה לשמש כנושא לשליחות.
