What Are Business Torts?
Business torts are wrongful acts committed — intentionally or negligently — against businesses, which may lead to financial losses. Some examples of business torts include:
- Tortious interference: Wrongful interference with a contractual relationship
- Fraudulent misrepresentation: Making false statements upon which another relies, leading to damages
- Unfair competition: False advertising or marketing a product that is substantially similar to another
- Computer or hardware damage: In some jurisdictions, the negligent or intentional damage to computer systems that harm profits or security
- Restraint of trade: Keeping another from conducting business as usual
- Defamation, libel or slander: Sometimes called “disparagement,” false statements regarding the quality of services or goods provided by a business that lead to financial losses for that business
Business torts — and the resulting damages to a business entity — may be commonly experienced in a multitude of business settings, including:
- Construction litigation proceedings
- Internal corporate disputes between officers and shareholders or employers and employees
- Disputes between business partners
- Employee termination situations
