Independent Manufacturer Sales Representative Litigation.

Illinois independent manufacturer sales representatives work for out-of-state and foreign manufacturers by developing, marketing and selling the manufacturer's products in limited, hard-to-reach markets. Independent representatives work on a commission basis.

Norman Lerum is a pioneer in establishing favorable case law for Illinois sales representatives against out-of-state and foreign manufacturers that attempt to avoid their obligation to pay earned commissions under the parties' contract and under the Illinois Sales Representative Act, 820 ILCS 120/1 et seq. See Midwest Enterprises v. Generac Corp., No. 91 C 2229, 1992 WL 169059 (N.D. Ill. August 27, 1991); JAMS Arbitration, Hon. Nan Nolan (Ret.) Opinion and Order, May 8, 2015, In the Matter of Micro Sales, Inc. v. Advantech Corporation.

The remedies available to independent manufacturer representatives include recovery of unpaid commissions, attorney fees and punitive damages.
