A competitive business climate creates many incentives not to play fair. Some businesses and business people breach contracts that they should honor. Others encourage companies to breach good contracts, employ deception in their business practices, or take unprincipled actions to disrupt existing business relationships. Still others compete unfairly, over aggressively, and in disregard to the law.
The law fortunately provides many remedies for those injured by unfair, sharp business practices. Courts enforce contracts that should be honored, and they make wrongdoers pay attorney's fees, court costs, and lost interest. Claims for fraud, tortious interference with business relationships, fiduciary duty, and business disparagement, as well as claims under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, provide many ways to remedy unfair, aggressive, and deceptive business practices. Many of these so-called "business tort" claims impose heavy punitive damages on wrongdoers, in addition to compensatory damages and lost interest.
Business litigation requires highly capable attorneys, who possess many years' experience, effective tactics and strategies, and great stamina. Attorneys who can try business cases to a jury also come in quite handy. And, attorneys must have settled and battle-tested relationships with qualified expert witnesses and consultants in order to achieve superior results in the business case.

We routinely evaluate cases involving various contract issues and business torts, and we have concluded successfully many business cases. We fully inform each client on all available options. When appropriate, we counsel in favor of resolution, compromise, and cost savings.
