Overview of Commercial Torts
In business law, commercial torts encompass civil wrongs that may be committed by or against an organization. These wrongs can substantially affect a company's reputation, relationships, and financial stability.
They primarily stem from actions that cause direct harm to a business, its resources, or its relationships, often involving unethical or illegal practices.
Common commercial tort claims include but are not limited to:
- Breach of contract: This is one of the most common commercial torts, where one party fails to live up to the terms agreed upon in a contract. The impacts can be significant, affecting not only the immediate transaction but potentially the long-term viability of a business relationship.
- Fraud: This involves a deliberate misrepresentation or omission of a material fact to induce another party to act to their detriment. Fraud can occur in various forms, such as securities fraud, insurance fraud, or corporate fraud.
- Misrepresentation: This involves making a false statement that induces another party into a contract. The misrepresentation can be fraudulent (made knowingly), negligent (made carelessly), or innocent (made without fault).
- Infringement of intellectual property rights: This involves the unauthorized use of a business's intellectual property, such as trademarks, patents, copyrights, or trade secrets. This can lead to significant financial losses and damage a brand's reputation.
