Representing Our Clients in Business Tort Lawsuits
We are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of business tort law, which typically involve business disputes that are not based on contracts. Individuals may file business tort claims, as may businesses such as corporations and limited liability companies.
Business torts are intentional actions that harm a person or business in some way. The resulting damages from these tortious actions may adversely impact intangible business assets, a business’s earnings or economic status, or business relationships. These torts involve various claims or causes of action that fall under several different laws.
