Business Torts

The majority of commercial cases now include one or more claims based on business torts such as fraud, negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, defamation, or tortious interference. Business torts typically present opportunities for creative lawyering by both the plaintiff and the defendant with respect to liability theories and damage calculations. Navigating the various restrictions courts have placed on business torts, particularly those prosecuted in conjunction with contract claims or taking advantage of those restrictions when representing the defense, can present a challenge to the best of lawyers. Lawyers at Lotz Law Firm have had substantial success both sustaining and defeating business tort claims.
