Texas Tortious Interference: Has a Third Party Interfered with Your Business Contract?
Texas contract law recognizes a legal claim known as “tortious interference,” which allows a business owner whose contractual relationships are exploited by a third party to seek damages directly from that third party. These claims can address present as well as prospective business opportunities.
As part of our comprehensive, consultative approach, our attorneys will determine every legal claim - including possible claims for tortious interference in contracts or interference in respect to oral or informal agreements such as tortious interference of business.
Tortious Interference - Contracts Vs. Business:
- Tortious interference of contract is when a person intentionally and wrongfully disrupts a formal contract between two parties and causes one party to breach the contract.
- Tortious interference of business is when a third party uses false claims against a business in order to drive business away from them or to cause another party to not enter into a business relationship with them.
