Business Torts

Skilled Florida Business Torts Litigation Attorneys

At the MLG Business Litigation Group, our experienced business torts lawyers in Florida handle cases for plaintiffs whose businesses have been targeted by wrongful actions that intentionally, recklessly, or negligently caused their company harm.

Our skilled business tort attorneys focus on representing clients whose businesses have been negatively affected financially, competitively, or by reputation, because of another person or business’s actions to pursue the required compensation or injunctions necessary for the damages that resulted from the other’s actions.

Why Do Companies File Business Torts in Florida?

Our various Florida business tort laws serve two essential purposes. First, business torts are designed to compensate a company for any losses caused as a result of the action itself. The second goal is to deter the defendant from making the same violation in the future.

What are the Most Common Types of Business Torts in Florida?

Business torts are complex and require experienced attorneys to sort through the details to ensure the proper legal recourse is taken to pursue the necessary recovery options that will make our clients whole again.

When a business tort includes an action or inaction that prevents a business from operating as it otherwise would, they may span a wide range of legal areas, which include but are not limited to:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Breach of Contract
  • Tortious Interference
  • Unfair Trade Practices/ Restraint of Trade
  • Fraud and Negligent Misrepresentation
  • Defamation, Libel, and Slander
  • Misappropriation of Trade Secrets
  • Infringement of a Trademark or Trade Name

Breach of a Fiduciary Duty Business Torts

A breach of fiduciary duty occurs when a principal of an organization fails to act in the best interests of the company, which may include the breach of confidentiality or nondisclosure agreements.

Breach of Contract Business Torts

Breach of contract occurs when one party listed in a binding contractual agreement does not fulfill the obligations outlined therein.

Tortious Interference Business Torts

Tortious interference occurs when a third party intentionally interferes with a contract between the plaintiff and another party that leads to damages that result in the business not receiving the performance promised within the contracted terms.

This typically results from the third-party’s interference causing the contracting party to breach their contract with the plaintiff, or actions that disrupt the ability of the contractor to perform their contractual obligations.

Unfair Trade Practices Business Torts

Unfair trade practices, also called restraint of trade, occurs when one party interrupts another business’s ability to freely conduct business.

This can include any activity that limits trade, sales, and transportation, or severely affects interstate commerce.

Another example of unfair trade practices results from a business or individual taking actions or entering into agreements that would result in another business ceasing to operate as normal.

Fraud and Negligent Misrepresentation Business Torts

Fraudulent misrepresentation is a deliberate deception designed to secure unfair or unlawful gain.

If you have entered into a business agreement with someone who misrepresented their position, intentions, or a material aspect of the deal that causes your organization financial harm, your company may be eligible to bring a fraud and negligent representation claim against the offending party.

Defamation, Libel, and Slander Business Torts

Defamation business torts are claims that allege a false statement about a business as fact, which causes the organization to suffer financial harm.

When defamatory statements are spoken, they are called slander. When defamatory statements are written, they are called libel.

Misappropriation of Intellectual Property or Trade Secrets Business Torts

The misappropriation of intellectual property or trade secrets can include the deliberate misplacement, exploitation, or wrongful — whether temporary or permanent — use of propriety business or intellectual property or trade secrets with the intent of gaining an unfair competitive advantage.

Infringement of a Trademark or Trade Name Business Torts

Infringement of a trademark or trade name includes the unauthorized use of a trademark, service mark, or trade name to mistake, confuse, or deceive an audience about the source of the goods and/or services.
