Business Tort Attorneys in Orange County

Business law does not solely involve contract drafting and review, but can also include business torts, which are often as financially detrimental as ordinary torts.  Business torts have the potential to drastically affect your financial affairs and the makeup of your company, and are therefore taken very seriously in court.  If you have been the victim of a business tort, do not hesitate to contact an Orange County business torts attorney.

What Are Business Torts?

The term business torts includes a wide variety of offenses that can occur during business transactions, such as:

  • Fraud
  • Misrepresentation
  • Negligence
  • Nuisance
  • Invasion of Privacy
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Embezzlement
  • Trade Secret Misappropriation

These offenses can have lasting repercussions on your business and any corresponding agreements, and many are also criminal offenses.  Therefore, do not be dissuaded from bringing a business tort claim if the person committing the offense has criminal charges pending against them.  Criminal and civil charges may be brought at the same time, and civil law additionally has the added benefit of having a lower burden of proof than criminal cases.  As a result, you are more likely to get a favorable outcome even if the person is not convicted of a criminal offense.

Business Tort Claims

Bringing a business tort claim is never indicative of a pleasant time in life, but instead largely stems from an unfortunate business litigation deal that may have long-lasting repercussions on your life.  An individual or a business entity may bring a claim for a business tort, since the tort has the potential to impact the company as a whole, as well as an individual.  A business law attorney in Orange County can help you map out the best course of action and will assist you in researching all necessary claims, as well as filing all necessary paperwork to ensure the claim is timely filed.

A business tort action must prove the following four elements:

  • A legal duty was owed;
  • This legal duty was breached;
  • The breach of legal duty led to an injury; and
  • The injury led to damages.

The type of damages you may receive in a successful business tort case largely depends on the type of case in question.  For example, a breach of contractual duty may lead to monetary compensation, but could also lead to performance of the contractual duties which were breached.  An experienced Orange County business tort attorney will carefully examine your case to determine the appropriate damages.
