Our firm handles torts that can arise out of the course of business or corporate relationships such as the following:

  • Tortious interference with contractual relations
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Violation of confidentiality or non-compete covenants
  • Inducing employees to breach duties of loyalty and non-compete obligations

Business litigation involving tort claims can arise in many contexts, ranging from counterclaims in contract or employment litigation to shareholder rights disputes upon the departure of a key equity partner, executive, or professional employee. Tort claims can also figure significantly as an original claim or counterclaim in litigation related to the purchase or sale of a business or any other major event in the course of the operation of your business.

One advantage that our clients in business tort litigation enjoy is our ability to seek and obtain injunctive relief on short notice in order to stabilize a volatile situation, particularly in cases involving trade secrets, other confidential data, or barriers to the performance of essential contractual obligations.
