What is a Business Tort?
A Business Tort consists of any act by another resulting in a monetary or reputational loss. To prevail in an action against an opposing party based on a business tort, it must be proven that the defendant intentionally, negligently or recklessly caused the loss. Additionally, it has to be successfully demonstrated that the defendant had a duty to act in good faith, breached that duty, and caused harm to fall upon the plaintiff business. Some examples of business torts include interference with another’s prospective or existing contract for goods or services, making false (defamatory) claims about another business, and wrongfully interfering with normal business operations.
Business Contract Disputes
Under the law, in order for a contract to be valid there must be a demonstrable “meeting of the minds.” This means that both parties to the contract possess the same understanding of their duties and rights under the terms of the contract. This is particularly important with respect to the sale or purchase of goods or services. Both parties must understand the contractual provisions, and intend to agree to such provisions. When there is a lack of such on both sides, the contract may be invalidated.
Aside from this issue, other disputes may arise such as failure to produce the goods or services within the time allotted, delivering subpar goods, failing to provide the agreed upon services, or lack of payment.
Is Legal Counsel Necessary?
In short, yes. Legal disputes, including relatively minor disagreements that could easily be rectified by a lawyer, can quickly escalate into full blown litigation when attempting to handle the matter yourself.
Should you become involved in a business dispute, it is crucial that you retain the services of a highly qualified attorney as soon as possible. An experienced lawyer may be able to help you avoid litigation, which can be both costly and timely. While sometimes thoroughly unavoidable, a seasoned negotiator may be able to prevent litigation by employing intelligent and creative negotiation tactics that will resolve your dispute peacefully.
Employer / Employee Disputes
Should an employee make accusations of wrongdoing against your business, you must take immediate action to preserve and protect your company and its assets. Employer / Employee disputes include a vast array of causes of action, including Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Wrongful Termination to name a few. These types of disputes can easily destroy a small, family owned business. They can also create an enormous amount of difficulties for large companies with fully staffed HR departments.
Attorney Thomas S. Carter has been providing dedicated, quality legal counsel and representation to businesses in Claremont, the surrounding cities and throughout the Inland Empire for more than ten years. If you are facing employee accusations against your business, please contact us today for a complimentary consultation with a leading Business Litigation Lawyer.
How Long Does Business Litigation Take?
While there is no definite answer to this question as every case is unique, you can generally expect litigation to last anywhere from several months to several years. The timeframe depends on the complexity of the issues at hand, the actions of the parties, and whether or not negotiating a settlement is feasible. If so, this is the timeliest and most cost effective means of resolving the dispute.
Attorney Thomas Carter is not only an experienced and talented litigator, he is also a skilled negotiator. For knowledgeable and intelligent legal counsel, please contact the Law Offices of Thomas S. Carter at (909) 296-
