Chicago Intentional Torts Lawyer
Holding Those Accountable For Deliberate Wrongful Acts
Companies compete with and move to gain advantages over one another in
the course of doing business. However, when an entity or individual intentionally
seeks to harm a business, they must be held accountable for their actions.
Intentional torts in

damages from the offending parties.

Cases We Cover
Our team can assist your business with numerous types of intentional torts. Proving
an intentional tort can often be a tall order that will require seasoned
legal assistance. We can review the facts of your case and determine whether
you have a viable claim.
Our Chicago intentional torts attorney can assist you with:
Fraud. Fraudulent behavior can take many forms, all of which can potentially
cause material harm to a business. Illinois law requires that a business
prove that a fraudulent statement must have been made deliberately, that
the statement was intended to compel the business to act, and that the
business suffered material damages due to their actions driven by the
misrepresentation. Our team can ensure the evidence available meets these
criteria and aggressively advocate for your interests in court.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty. High-level executives and corporate officers maintain a fiduciary duty
to a corporation’s shareholders. When that agreement is violated
out of self-interest, the corporation will often suffer significant harm.
We can help hold these bad actors accountable and recover damages.
Tortuous Interference with a Contract or Business Relationship. Many businesses will maintain contractual and ongoing relationships with
vendors, contractors, and other companies as part of their operations.
When a third party intentionally disturbs a relationship or contract between
businesses, they can jeopardize the stability and financial health of
everyone involved and be held liable for their disruptive actions. We
can explore the circumstances specific to your situation and determine
if you have a case.
Theft of Trade Secrets. Intellectual property and trade secrets can represent a tremendous advantage
for businesses operating in competitive industries. When someone –
whether it be a corporate officer, disgruntled former employee, third
party vendor, or even a hacker – steals and disseminates trade secrets,
they threaten your company’s ability to remain competitive. If someone
has caused your business irreversible damage in the theft and distribution
of sensitive company property, we can help recover damages and potentially
pursue criminal charges.
Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. Businesses can potentially be held liable for causing emotional distress
in employees. The offending behavior will have to be proven to be intentional
or reckless, extreme, and the root cause of severe emotional suffering
for one or more employees. We can aggressively defend businesses accused
of this type of intentional tort.
