Business Torts

Individuals are not the only ones who get injured; companies can also be damaged by another person’s misconduct. Employees can steal intellectual property, clients can breach contracts and violate agreements, and competitors break rules to gain an unfair advantage.

When this happens, companies often take it on the chin. Owners have businesses to run​ and often don’t have the time or resources to get bogged down battling with some other, often larger and better-resourced competitor. Additionally, there is also a mistaken perception that they’ll have to pay significant attorney fees to receive justice.

We’re here to tell that isn’t the case. Lawyers, including the attorneys at KBA, have been taking on some of the biggest, best-defended corporations for years. We have battled them in courts across the country, winning hundreds of millions of dollars from billion-dollar companies represented by $​1​000​+​/hour lawyers, and we’re willing to take them on again. Best of all, we prosecute cases on a contingency basis, which means we don’t get paid unless we recover money for you. So next time someone hurts your business, give us a call.

Here are some common ways competitors or individuals can cause an economic loss in your company:

  • Tortious Interference (e.g., actions inhibiting contracts or economic relations)
  • Theft of intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade secrets, patents, copyrights, logos, etc.)
  • Commercial or trade libel (e.g., publishing false, damaging statements that hurt your business)
  • Fraud/misrepresentations in transactions
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Restraint of trade
  • Restrictive covenants (e.g., excessive non-compete agreements or violations of them)
  • Unfair competition or practices
