Issues Handled in Business Tort Cases

Fraudulent Misrepresentation 
Every business entity has the right to fair and honest treatment. If you believe your right was violated, you may be able to file a business tort claim based on fraudulent misrepresentation. In these claims, the plaintiff must establish that the defendant intentionally misrepresented material facts and that the plaintiff was harmed by this misrepresentation.

Sometimes, these claims can arise when a defendant fails to disclose information that was necessary for a transaction. For example, if a defendant fails to notify a real estate agent that a property contains toxic chemicals, then he or she may be liable for fraud. We can defend or litigate a fraudulent misrepresentation claim for you.

Interference with Contractual Relations 
Plaintiffs can seek damages from a defendant if the individual interfered with the plaintiff’s contractual relationship. Normally, the plaintiff needs to prove that he or she had a valid contract with a third party and that the defendant had knowledge of this contract. We will then need to prove that the defendant’s actions were designed to induce a breach or disruption of the contractual relationship and that the actual breach or disruption of the contractual relationship resulted in damage.

Interference with Prospective Business Advantage 
If you believe that another party has interfered with your prospective business advantages pre-contract, you may be able to file a tort claim based on this act. You will need to prove that you are in an economic relationship that has the probability of benefit and that the defendant was aware of this when he or she acted in a way that intentionally disrupted the relationship. You will also need to prove that the relationship was terminated or damaged by the defendant’s action and that the damages were caused by the defendant.

Unfair Competition 
You may be able to file a tort claim if you believe that a company was unlawful or unfair in any act of business. Also, misleading advertising campaigns may be handled in a business tort claim.
