Litigation From Sales Operations

Sales activities generate a significant share of all business litigation.  TLG attorneys have decades of experience litigating cases which are invariably associated with the sales operations of active companies.

Representative expertise includes:

  • Trade Secret and Unfair Competition Claims
  • Commission Disputes Following Terminations
  • Disputes With Distributors and Sales Representatives
  • Disputes With European Sales Organizations Protected By EU Law
  • Disputed Sales Contracts
  • Breach of Warranty Claims
  • False Advertising
  • Trade Libel
  • Consumer Actions
The famous case creating guidelines to determine entitlement to post-termination sales commissions, American Software, Inc. v. ALI, Court of Appeals of California, First Appellate District, Division Five (1996) 46 Cal. App. 4th 1386, was won on behalf of the employer by the current head of this TLG practice area.  The case has been subsequently cited as controlling authority in dozens of cases and remains the leading case in this area of law.
