Business Torts and Fraud
Business torts – fraud, intentional and negligent misrepresentation, tortious interference with contract or prospective business relations, breaches of fiduciary duties, and violation of non-compete agreements – can arise in any type of business transaction. Unfortunately, business torts are becoming more prevalent in our fast-paced business world. Business torts, whether as independent claims or combined with breach of contract claims, add increased complexity and risk to business disputes.
Most business tort claims involve intentional acts, statements, or omissions by a party that relate to a material component of the contract or transaction. As such, business tort claims are often complicated in that they are fact-intensive and require proving multiple elements under each claim. Beyond this, business torts may subject a party to punitive damages, thus increasing the party’s financial exposure. As a result, whether asserting or defending business tort claims, Sodoma Law business litigation attorneys understand the need for effective representation to address such claims.
