Business Torts Including Fraudulent Misrepresentation
If you believe that your business’ right to fair and honest treatment was violated, a fraudulent misrepresentation tort claim may be available. These claims are based on proving the defendant knowingly misrepresented facts that harmed your business.
Fraudulent misrepresentation includes more than misrepresenting a fact; it also includes the failure to disclose information that should have been disclosed. Examples of fraudulent misrepresentation include: representing that a home is energy efficient when it is not or selling a building without disclosing the known presence of asbestos. Our firm can investigate potential liability for fraudulent misrepresentation whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant.
Business Torts Involving Interference with Contractual Relationships
If another person or company knowingly interferes with your contracts, you may be able to claim damages. There must be evidence of the valid contractual relationship. You must also have proof that the individual was aware of the contract and intended to cause a breach or disruption. Attorney Scott McLemore can defend or litigate an interference with contractual relationships claim for you.
Prospective Business Advantage Interference Tort Claims
A tort claim can be filed if an individual has interfered with your pre-contract prospective business advantages. In other words, a prospective business advantage interference claim can be filed if an individual interferes with your business with another party before a contractual relationship is formed. There must be proof of an economic relationship likely to lead to financial gain and evidence that the defendant was aware of the relationship. Also, there must be evidence that the defendant’s intentional actions lead to the damage or termination of the relationship.
Companies are meant to compete; however, all competition must be legal. Advertising campaigns found to be misleading are potential business tort cases. Businesses may be held liable for unlawful or unfair actions; filing a tort claim is an option when seeking justice.
