Virginia Business Torts: Protecting Your Company From Unfair Practices

When another business’s conduct harms your company financially, often referred to as a business tort, a legal action may be necessary to help you recoup your losses. The attorneys of Bowen Ten Long & Bal, PC, have decades of combined experience handling business legal matters and fiduciary litigation. From our Richmond, Virginia, offices, we can guide you, increasing your odds of a successful outcome.

What Is A Business Tort?

It is a civil wrong that causes economic harm to another business, often necessitating a commercial (civil) lawsuit. These wrongs can take many forms, but some of the most common (and damaging) include:

  • Tortious interference: When a third party interferes with your business relationships – for instance, by inducing a breach of contract or disrupting a valuable opportunity.
  • Business conspiracy: When two or more parties agree to act together to harm a business – examples include price fixing or a coordinated smear campaign.
  • Defamation: When a business makes false and damaging statements about your company – for example, claims that you cut corners, mistreat workers or offer substandard goods.
  • Conversion: When someone takes possession of business property (tangible or intangible) and treats it as their own – examples include stealing intellectual property or misappropriating company funds.
  • Unjust enrichment: When a business gains at your expense – for example, refusing to return extra money in an accidental overpayment.

These disputes can be a nightmare for any business owner. Complex legal issues, financial losses and the potential for lasting damage can quickly spiral out of control without experienced guidance.
