Business Torts

Orlando Business Torts Attorneys – Vaughan Law Group

Just as another’s acts can injure a person, sometimes a wrongful act is committed which injures the interests of a business. This “Business Tort” may give rise to a claim or lawsuit.

Our Orlando Business Tort firm understands that most small businesses cannot afford to assert or protect their legal rights when they are victimized by the wrongs of a larger corporation. That is why we can handle legitimate, meritorious “business tort” claims on a contingency fee basis: that means you pay no legal fees unless you prevail and collect money. Our firm takes a percentage of what you recover. This is just like we handle a personal injury lawsuit against the insurance companies. Depending on the case we may ask you to cover costs associated with the litigation. Once your case is evaluated the options and costs will be discussed based on the individual circumstances.

Some examples of business torts include:

  • General business disputes
  • Officer and director breach of fiduciary duty
  • Interference with business relationships and contracts
  • Conspiracy
  • Breach of employee non-disclosure, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
  • Disparagement and defamation
  • False advertising
  • Unfair business practices and competition
  • Copyright and patent infringement
  • Fraud
  • Cases involving toxic or hazardous waste

How long will my business tort case last?

This is a difficult question to answer without knowing the specific type of case and the specific facts of your case. However, a general rule-of-thumb would be within 3-9 months for cases that don’t have to be put into suit and 12-24 months for cases that are filed on.

Do I have to go to trial for my business tort claim?

Again, the specifics of each case will help decide whether a trial would be advantageous to you. However, you will never HAVE to go to trial; that will be up to you. In most cases, court ordered mediation allows the parties to get together and resolve the case prior to any trials.
