What is a Business Tort?

Business torts are the illicit conduct of a business or an individual, which causes harm to another business. We tenaciously represent our business clients in all areas of tort law. Whether you need to defend your business against allegations of a tort or you’re the victim of a tort, a business tort attorney can handle your case. At the Law Office of Alexander Schachtel, our goal is to provide you with the peace of mind you need to focus on the day-to-day operations of your business.

Examples of Business Tort Cases

The purpose of business tort law is to allow parties to conduct business with each other without the fear of interference by a third party or another business. A few types of business torts include:
Business Fraud or Misrepresentation
When a business deliberately makes a distortion of a material fact in an effort to coax another party to enter into a business transaction.
Wrongful Interference
Such as interference with contractual relationships or business contracts. Wrongful interference can arise if another business or party is aware of a prospective business relationship and takes action to interrupt that relationship. Since businesses run on contracts, this can be particularly egregious. Needless to say, interference with business relationships can damage a business’ opportunities and income.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty

When a business or party has a fiduciary relationship with your business, and that party or business puts their needs above the needs of your business or act in an untrustworthy way. If this is the case, they have breached their fiduciary duties.


Business defamation occurs when an individual or business has knowingly made false statements or remarks about the quality of your business’ services or products.

Theft or Misappropriation of Trade Secrets

The theft of misappropriation of your intellectual property, such as trade secrets, by former employees, current employees or any other party is a business tort.

Computer Torts

If someone negligently or intentionally causes damage to computer software or hardware and, by doing so, disrupts the ability of the business to perform profitably, that individual may have committed a business tort.

What Our Clients Say...

Need a Remedy for a Business Tort?

A Business Torts Attorney Can Help

The remedy is compensation for any damage and loss of business. Call (201) 925-0660 for a Free Consultation with a Business Torts Attorney if you think there may be an issue. All damage must be converted into a dollar amount so the harmed business can be reimbursed for its loss. Moreover, an injunction may be ordered, for example, to stop one party from running false advertisements against another. And, if the intentional act is exceptionally abhorrent, punitive damages may be awarded. The purpose of punitive damages is to punish any wrongful actor for their misconduct.
