Helping Businesses Resolve Legal Issues
A business tort may arise from an action in which one business acted in a way that caused damage to another business. This is not where one company was simply more competitive, but where theft, misrepresentation or fraud allows one company to gain an advantage. The Womack Law Firm has handled hundreds of business tort cases, including those involving the following:
- Deceptive and unfair trade practices, tortious interference with contracts, interference with prospective economic advantage, negligence and gross negligence, fraudulent inducement, promissory estoppels, unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, imposition of constructive trusts, foreclosure disputes, foreclosure injunctions, failures to issue stock, declarations of dividends, shareholder freeze-outs, corporate mismanagement, conspiracies to deny shareholder’s rights, shareholder oppression, use of company assets for personal gain, failure to deliver financial information, patent infringement and invalidity, technology license disputes, false and misleading financial statements, misleading and omitted statements in sales of securities, wrongful conduct of underwriting auditors, violation of state and federal securities acts, failure to issue stock, and damages to reputation and good will
- Unfair competition, false advertising, misrepresentation, trade secrets, intellectual property, partnership disputes and real estate disputes
- Matters involving disputes between wholesalers and retailers, insurers and reinsurers, and financial institutions, including matters relating to banking operations and loan participations
- Franchising, lender liability, consumer protection disputes, bid disputes and environmental cases
When a business acts in a way that can harm another business — apart from normal market competitiveness — a business tort may ensue. The business that has suffered may file a lawsuit to recover compensation for damages suffered — including monetary losses, as well as damage to the reputation of the business.
