Who We Are:

The Sales Commission Enforcers (SCE) are comprised of a team of lawyers, paralegals and staff that specialize ONLY in the litigation and counseling of sales agents. Unlike other law firms that claim to be dedicated to the law on Agency Sales, the SCE were formed EXCLUSIVELY to protect the best interests of sales agents.

What We Do For Sales Agents/Agencies:

  • We counsel them on how to avoid lawsuits.
  • We negotiate contracts to protect their territorial rights, book of business, and termination compensation.
  • We prepare and/or review representation agreements to best protect their interests.
  • We sue on their behalf; and defend claims against them.
  • We gain reinstatement (in certain instances) when they have been wrongfully terminated.
  • We assist with a succession plan and execution of that plan when they retire.

Litigation Services

The SCE are sometimes best able to assist agents in avoiding lawsuits through counseling and assistance with negotiating, either behind the scenes or directly with the principal. Many times lawsuits can be avoided with knowledgeable, hard negotiating tactics. We are well armed, and have settled thousands of cases without lawsuits; but agents need to be prudent and timely with their contract concerns to avoid potential litigation.

When negotiating alone cannot resolve a contract dispute, the SCE are well prepared to file a lawsuit to protect your sales commissions, or defend counter claims by your principal. We assign any where between 1-3 attorneys as well as 1 paralegal to your case, depending on the costs, your budget, and the time required.
