Ramsey Business Torts Information

Business Torts Are Committed By or Against a Business

If you are a business owner whose company has been damaged by the wrongful interference of another person or business or if a business has done a wrong against you, contact a Ramsey attorney skilled in business tort law. He or she can help you enforce your rights and try to right any wrong.

Business Torts Typically Involve Deceit

Business torts are actions that harm company assets, relationships, or its reputation. The torts fall into three areas: fraudulent misrepresentation, interference with contractual relations, and interference with prospective business advantage. Each tort involves some form of deceit or falsehood disseminated by someone that causes your business to lose customers, profits, community standing, or other damage.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
