Commercial Torts

Our business tort practice (sometimes called “commercial torts”) is a natural corollary to our qui tam and employment law practices.  These claims often, but not always, arise out of an employment relationship when a departing employee steals trade secrets, misappropriates a business opportunity, or otherwise engages in unfair competition with his or her former employer.  These matters also sometimes arise between competitors, or former business partners.

While we strive to offer a variety of interesting and useful information on our website, these materials are offered solely for informational purposes and should not be construed as legal advice.  Furthermore, while you can also find information about our past successes on these pages, you should understand that past success does not guarantee a good outcome in any particular case.
