Business Torts & Consumer Fraud


event_images
If you have been cheated in doing business or making a purchase, our business tort and consumer fraud lawyers can help.

 
 
Business torts are civil wrongs that are committed by or against an individual or organization causing economic injury or harm.  If your business has suffered or has been placed at risk because of reckless, careless or intentional misconduct, you need a team of experienced trial lawyers to advance and protect your interests.  Some common categories of business torts include breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, breach of contract, racketeering and tortious interference with a business or contract.
 
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
 
A fiduciary is a party who is charged with acting in another party’s best interests.  If the fiduciary acts in a way that is adverse to the beneficiary’s interests, breach of fiduciary duty occurs.  If you have been wronged by a business partner, joint venturer, trustee, administrator, advisor or other party that owes you a fiduciary duty, we can help.
 
Fraud
 
For a fraud claim, a plaintiff must establish that the defendant intentionally misrepresented a material fact and the plaintiff relied on and was harmed by the misrepresentation.  Our experienced lawyers help clients pursue claims against businesses that have defrauded them and misappropriated their assets.
 
Breach of Contract
 
Many business relationships are defined by complicated contracts with exhaustive terms.  If you find yourself in a contract dispute, you will need an attorney that possesses the experience to handle contractual matters effectively and efficiently.  If you have questions about a contract, or are already involved in a contract dispute, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your options.  
 
Racketeering (RICO)
 
The RICO Act provides a civil suit component for victims of corrupt businesses acquired or operated through criminal conduct. If a corrupt enterprise has taken actions that harm your business, we may be able to help you pursue a racketeering claim.
 
Tortious Interference
 
Tortious interference can be broken down into two categories: interference with business relationships and interference with contract rights.  If another business has interfered with your contractual relationships or business relationships, you may have a tortious interference claim.
 
Consumer Fraud
 
Consumer Fraud is an act or omission in the conduct of trade or commerce designed to mislead a consumer.  This includes use of any false pretense, false promise or misrepresentation.  It also includes the concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact, with intent that others rely upon the concealment, suppression or omission of such material fact.  Consumer fraud can occur in  common transactions such as buying a car and/or warranty from an automobile dealer, investing in real estate, or investing in securities and financial services..
 
If you believe that you were defrauded, you need an attorney who can immediately begin to untangle the facts of your case and identify the fraudulent parties and aggressively prosecute claims against them.  Contact us today contact us today for a free, initial consultation.
 
Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices
 
The North Carolina Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act (UDTPA) was originally enacted as a consumer protection statute to provide for civil legal means to maintain ethical standards of dealings between persons engaged in business and between persons engaged in business and the consuming public.  It covers unfair or deceptive acts or practices which affect commerce and cause actual harm to an individual or business.
 
Some instances that constitute unfair trade include false representations of a product, overcharging for products and/or services, and libel/slander regarding business dealings.  If you or your business has been harmed by unfair or deceptive trade, contact us today for a free, initial consultation.
