Business Tort Litigation: wrongdoing in business relationships, including fraud, negligent misrepresentation or tortious interference with contracts.
On occasion, we are called upon by our corporate clients to assist them with matters that do not fall squarely within the scope of the employment relationship. We have now developed our attorneys to practice in two related areas of law, Business Tort Litigation and Internet Law.
A “tort” is a wrongful act or an infringement of a right (other than under contract) leading to civil legal liability. A business tort claim typically refers to wrongdoing in the business relationship, which may include things like fraud, negligent misrepresentation or tortious interference with contract. Business torts are a common feature of commercial disputes and may occur within any commercial context and across all industries. Our firm has experience prosecuting and defending against business-to-business tort claims, helping businesses remedy damages incurred and defending against unsubstantiated claims. We also have experience helping businesses deal with claims arising under the broad area of law known as “Internet Law.” These are claims that arise out of conduct and commerce in cyberspace. For example, we have worked on claims involving web site development and ownership and defamation via social media.
