Causes of action for business torts in Texas

Businesses in Texas and throughout the United States have significant legal protection from injurious behavior by unscrupulous rivals. Behaviors that give rise to a civil cause of action include:

  • Fraudulent misrepresentation — A business deliberately submits false information to another business to gain an economic benefit, and the second business relies on that information to its detriment. In such a case, the second business can sue for losses that result from the misrepresentation.
  • Wrongful interference — One party intentionally interferes with a second party’s legitimate business interest, such as by deliberately inducing a breach of a legitimate contract that damages the second party’s business. Wrongful interference can also apply to relationships between a company and a business prospect, when another party deliberately disrupts the relationship, causing loss to the company.
  • Unfair competition — This is an umbrella term for deceptive practices, such as false advertising and trademark or service mark infringement, that can cause the public to confuse two rival businesses.
  • Trade secret theft — Misappropriation of trade secrets, especially by former employees, can rob a business of its competitive advantage. A trade secret is any formula, pattern, device or compilation of information used in a trade or business that gives the holder a competitive advantage over those who do not know or use it.
  • Disparagement/trade libel — Alleging that a business is incompetent or unethical, especially in these days of social media, can do unjust economic harm.

Whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant in a business tort case, the outcome of the litigation will have a significant impact on your business. You need a business litigation attorney you can trust to manage the complexities of the case and pursue a fair resolution.
