Business torts charges arise when wrongs against a business, such as trademark infringement or unfair competition, are alleged to have occurred. Actions are often brought under the Federal Antitrust Statutes, and claims on the state level are becoming increasingly prevalent.
The poor performance of the economy in general and the consequent hardships to businesses has led to an increase in business torts litigation. Businesses may become the target of competitors, dissatisfied customers, employees, investors, and others who feel they have suffered losses. You can even be sued by a partially-owned subsidiary.
We provide legal representation for the following types of business torts:
Abuse of process
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Civil Conspiracy and Conspiracy to Induce Breach of Contract
Fraud and fraud in the inducement
Interference with employment or prospective economic advantage
Misappropriation of trade secrets
Negligence and negligent misrepresentation
Slander and slander of title
Theft and loss of business opportunities
Theft of trade secrets
Trade libel or disparagement
Trademark infringement and trade name infringement
Unfair competition and trade practices
Damages in business torts cases, both compensatory and punitive, are typically very large. Due to Tort Reform, the plaintiff is given a large amount of leeway in the evidence that may be presented to establish allegedly "improper" conduct on the part of the defendant.
Commercial litigation requires significant resources. Long-drawn-out discovery can involve an enormous number of depositions and documents. Business torts lawsuits are usually complex, extensive, and many will occur out-of-state. Without the right help, the obstacles can seem insurmountable.
