“Business Torts” encompasses a broad type of cases with this general similarity: a person or business has acted wrongfully and caused economic harm to another person or business. A primary example of this type of case is a “breach of fiduciary duty” case, in which a person or business owes a duty of utmost good faith to another person but has breached that duty by acting to harm the economic interests of another person. These kinds of cases can arise from partnerships (in which one partner acts wrongfully toward another), investment relationships (in which a corporation or broker has mishandled assets), or joint venture situations (in which two companies are working together for joint benefit but one company acts wrongfully in that project).
Business Torts can also include basic fraud cases – in which a person has been intentionally induced to rely on false representations of another to their detriment – as well as cases in which a business has interfered with contracts between other businesses.
