A business tort is a wrongful act and/or an illegal act that often involves fraud, unfair competition or breach of fiduciary duty. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, we have Dallas Business Torts lawyers who can help you resolve your legal issues.

Unfair Business Practices and Wrongful Conduct

Some of the most common types of business torts that may initiate a legal dispute and provide a basis for suit or damages to be awarded include:

  • Tortious interference by a previous employee or client: This occurs when an employee leaves a company and attempts to, or does, steal an existing client from that company. This may occur when a business competitor engages in unfair business practices and interferes with the business relationships your company has established with a client, a bank, a business or any other prospective business interest.
  • Tortious interference of a contract: This occurs when a third party acts in a manner that prevents a party to a contract from performing, or otherwise meeting its obligations, under that contract.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: A fiduciary duty is a duty to act in the best interests of a beneficiary, a stockholder or a company. Partners, shareholders, officers, directors and others who commit a breach of fiduciary duty may be held liable for economic damages that they have caused.
  • Unfair business practices: This may include unfair advertising, fraud, breach of a non-compete contract, negligent misrepresentation or other prohibited business practices.
  • Defamation: False statements that damage the professional reputation of an individual or company. These statements may be oral (slander) or written (libel) statements communicated within a company or outside of a company, so long as they are communicated or “published” to a third party.
