Tortious Interference

“Tortious Interference” refers to the various deliberate actions by a business which obstruct a current contractual agreement that has been made between two other businesses or obstruct an impending deal between two other businesses. Normally, tortious interference takes place when a party deliberately acts in a way that will cause a breach of contract by another company. Tortious interference may also take place when one party interferes with a company securing a contract.

If you run a business and you believe you have been prevented from conducting business due to tortuous interference, then you should seek meet with our business law to discuss your options.

Examples of Tortious Interference

These are Typical Examples of Tortious Interference:

  • When an action by company A brings about a situation in which company B breaches its lease, resulting in company B leasing from company A.

  • When an action by company A causes a customer to break their contract(s) with company B, followed by the customer seeking a contract with company A.

  • When one company causes a customer to cease a contract with a competing company by defaming the competitor’s president.

  • When a company obstructs the signing of a contract by a competitor by making derogatory comments about the quality of its product.

These are not the only situations that Texas courts acknowledge tortious interference. Claims can be made for almost any kind of business relationship and even any type of prospective business relationship.

If you think you have a case of tortious interference, you should contact a Texas lawyer to help you through the claims process and bring about a productive resolution.

Business relationship claims come in two forms. The first is referred to as a contract claim. As the plaintiff you have to prove the following:

  • That a contract was in existence
  • The contract was interfered with deliberately by the defendant
  • The defendant's actions brought about the harm
  • The defendant’s actions caused damages.

There are also grounds to make a claim when a potential business relationship was likely to take place but there was no formal contract yet established. Damages and injury and any other interference can be claimed for in this situation as well.

When you make a claim for damages, you may be able to get compensation for any contract that didn’t come your way, resulting in loss of potential profits.

Guest and Gray law firm is wonderful. I have had the chance to work with three of the lawyers and they all have been wonderful. They will tell you when you need a lawyer and when you don't. They actually try to save you money. They respond very fast to questions and try to help you understand what is going on. They are caring and are really judgment free. If I needed a lawyer again I would use this firm in a second and recommend them. K.K.
