A business tort occurs when the wrongful conduct of an individual or business causes financial harm to another business. When a competitor breaks the law to obtain an unfair advantage, the harm to you or your business can be severe. Business tort laws provide remedies to individuals and businesses whose business relationships or other economic interests have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of another.
At McKay Law, we understand the applicable rules and related standards governing the admissibility of evidence. We can pursue tort relief for a variety of wrongful acts such as:
Breach of fiduciary duty. If you have been wronged by a business partner, joint venturer, trustee, administrator, advisor or other party that owes you a fiduciary duty, we can help.
Fraud and conversion. We help clients pursue claims against businesses that have defrauded them and misappropriated their assets.
Breach of contract. Contract disputes can evolve into extraordinarily complex litigation. Often business torts occur simultaneously with contract disputes. We have the resources and insights to handle these cases.
Tortious interference. If another business has interfered with your business relationships, you may have a tortious interference claim.
Whistleblower cases. We help whistleblowers pursue actions against contractors and other companies that have defrauded the government. Whistleblowers may be eligible to obtain a portion off all the money recovered.
Unfair and deceptive trade practices.
Misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of confidentiality agreements.
Intellectual property and trade secret protection.
Trade name and trademark infringement.
Litigation involving these and other torts can often be complex and challenging to resolve. It is important to hire a law firm that has experience in this area to ensure effective representation. We represent clients at all stages of litigation, with particular emphasis on complex litigation. We also recognize that litigation and trials can be expensive and place unwanted burdens on our clients. Therefore, while we love trying cases, we are also skilled in appropriate cost-effective dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration. We seek cost effective and practical resolutions, attempting to minimize lengthy litigation where possible. At the same time, we serve as strong advocates and advisers, fully appreciating the increasingly complicated commercial environments clients face.
