Commercial Litigation and Business Torts

Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., Litigates Business Disputes in New York

Business Torts, also known as Economic Torts, are civil cases wherein one party to a business transaction causes economic loss or damage to the other party.  The parties may be two businesses, a business which has caused a customer loss, or a customer or other third party that has caused a business loss. 

Lawsuits involving Business Torts and other business related disputes are collectively referred to as Commercial Litigation cases.

Business Torts typically involve commercial transactions, and include interference with trade or contract, fraud, injurious falsehood, and negligent misrepresentation. 

The objective in these cases is to prove that there is harm or damage wrongfully caused by one party to another party to a business transaction.

Classic examples of Business Torts between businesses include

  • breach of contract,
  • failure to pay,
  • intellectual property rights infringement,
  • violation of labor law,
  • and antitrust or unfair competition laws or rulings.

Business Torts involving customers include

  • negligent misrepresentation of goods or services, breach of contract, conspiracy to do business harm, and trade libel.
