Intentional Torts

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 business litigation encompass any wrongful conduct that intentionally causes financial harm to a business entity. Companies that have suffered financial injuries as a result of an intentional tort can pursue legal action and recover damages from the offending parties.

The Kenny Law Firm can both assist your business in bringing legal action as well as defend you should you face accusations of unlawful behavior. We are intimately familiar with the relevant Illinois laws and can provide the vigorous legal support you need to achieve your goals.

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.
