Business tort claims can surface in any commercial context and in any industry. Generally, business tort claims are business disputes that are not contract-based.

Companies facing business tort claims are often facing significant risk of harm to their business reputation, economic interests, and business relationships.

Mitchell Williams’ Arkansas-based lawyers have experience prosecuting claims uphold commercial interests, and defending our clients against claims that challenge their business. Despite their significance, business tort claims are not always obvious. Our business tort litigation team works with clients to determine the validity and viability of claims through careful investigation and understanding of the client’s business.

Our team regularly assists clients with issues including:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Deceptive Trade Practices

  • False advertisements
  • Invasion of privacy

  • Negligent Hiring

  • Negligent Misrepresentation

  • Slander and libel

  • Theft of trade secrets

  • Tortious interference with contractual relationships
