Protecting Healthcare Businesses in Litigated Business Disputes
“Business litigation” describes various business-related disputes that end up in court. For example, our firm represents our healthcare clients in business tort litigation. A business “tort” is a civil wrongdoing for which a legal cause of action exists. Business tort litigation might involve, for example, infringement of intellectual property rights, breach of fiduciary duties, defamation or slander, wrongful interference with business relationships, or other acts not based on breach of a contract but that cause harm. The remedies for most business torts are most often compensatory damages and (potentially) punitive damages and are typically matters of state law. The existence of a contract between parties does not necessarily bar a cause of action in tort. In some cases, tort remedies may exist even if the parties have a contract.
Our business litigation practice often involves disputed ownership rights or dissolutions. This type of business litigation is sometimes characterized as a “business divorce.” We have experience representing clients in business divorces involving a range of business types, including medical practices, ambulance services and health insurance joint ventures. Our firm’s focus is representing healthcare businesses.
