Business is a contact sport. But sometimes it goes further than sharp business practices. The law recognizes this with tort actions. We have experience in cases involving such torts:

  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Copyright and trademark violations, including statutory violations both state and federal
  • Trade dress claims, as well as claims of unfair competition, both common law and statutory
  • Violations of non-compete agreements
  • Fraud, misrepresentation, and negligent misrepresentation
  • Professional Negligence (REC)
  • Intentional interference with business relations
  • Defamation and business disparagement

Our firm prosecutes and defends these torts regularly, and successfully. We also have significant experience in the sale and winding up of closely held businesses.
