William & Mary Business Law Review


This Article aims to provide a basic overview of Virginia law resulting from suits for sales commissions, with a special emphasis on “procuring cause” case law. By thinking ahead to the kinds of issues that have resulted in the recovery or failure of sales commissions by agents in past sales commission cases, real estate litigators will be in a better position to advise their clients. To that end, this Article further seeks to serve as a brief, yet stout, reference resource for real estate litigators and members of the Virginia bench confronted with facts directed towards this often nuanced area of Virginia law.
