What Are Business Torts?

Business torts, also known as economic torts, refer to wrongful acts committed against a business entity that result in financial harm. These torts can take many forms and may include:


Fraud involves intentionally deceiving or misleading another party to induce them into entering a business transaction, resulting in financial loss. This could include misrepresenting financial statements, inflating revenues, or concealing material facts to gain an unfair advantage in a business deal. Fraudulent activities can have devastating consequences for businesses, tarnishing their reputation and eroding trust among stakeholders.

Tortious Interference

Tortious interference occurs when a party interferes with another party’s contractual or business relationships, thereby causing financial harm. This could involve inducing breach of contract, unlawfully disrupting existing business agreements, or sabotaging prospective business opportunities. Such interference undermines the stability of business relationships and can lead to significant financial losses for the affected parties.

Unfair Competition

Unfair competition encompasses various deceptive or unfair business practices that harm competitors and undermine the principles of fair trade. This may include false advertising, where businesses disseminate misleading information about their products or services to gain an unfair advantage in the marketplace. Other forms of unfair competition include trade secret misappropriation, where confidential information is unlawfully obtained and exploited, and trademark infringement, where businesses unlawfully use another company’s trademark to deceive consumers and gain market share.


Defamation involves making false statements about a business or its products/services that harm its reputation and result in financial damages. This could include spreading false rumors, publishing defamatory content online, or making disparaging remarks about a business’s integrity or reliability. Defamation can have far-reaching consequences, damaging a business’s credibility and eroding consumer trust, ultimately leading to loss of revenue and market share.

Negligent Misrepresentation

Negligent misrepresentation occurs when a party provides false or misleading information to another party without exercising reasonable care, resulting in financial loss. This could include providing inaccurate financial forecasts, misrepresenting the quality or performance of products/services, or failing to disclose material information that could affect a business transaction. Negligent misrepresentation can undermine the integrity of business dealings and expose parties to significant financial liabilities.

Trade Libel

Trade libel involves publishing false statements that disparage a business or its products/services, causing financial harm. This could include spreading false rumors about a business’s financial stability, product safety, or corporate ethics, with the intention of damaging its reputation and undermining its competitiveness in the marketplace. Trade libel can have serious repercussions for businesses, leading to loss of customers, revenue, and market share.
