Business tort claims

The civil lawyers at the Law Offices of Tacopina Seigel & DeOreo provide comprehensive support regarding business tort claims. The firm’s New York attorneys can competently help you with the following aspects about your case:

  • Pleading requirements:

    Businesses, like individuals, are capable of bringing many causes of legal action, or torts. The two most common business torts are tortious interference with contract and tortious interference with prospective economic advantage. A claim of tortious interference with contract requires the plaintiff to demonstrate: the existence of a valid contract between plaintiff and a third party, the defendant’s knowledge of that contract, the defendant’s intentional procuring of the breach and damages. Tortious interference with prospective economic advantage is a similar cause of action but does not require the existence of a contract. Rather, it requires only that the plaintiff have had a reasonable prospect of economic advantage.

  • Issues to look for during discovery:

    As with most commercial litigation, the general approach in a business tort case is to seek broad discovery. Business tort cases are usually document-intensive and it is important to have a good discovery management plan. All the discovery in the world won’t help your case if your NY attorneys do not know what materials are important to your case and where to find them when they are needed. A combination of old-fashioned know-how and searchable electronic databases allows Tacopina, Seigel & DeOreo to effectively manage even the most burdensome document productions.

  • Using expert witnesses:

    Not unlike personal torts, business torts come in all shapes and sizes and often demand the assistance of a wide variety of experts including forensic accountants, computer forensics experts, industry-specific experts and economists.
