Not all remedies available to a business are based on contract. Businesses can pursue action against other businesses or individuals that have wronged them under a number of legal doctrines called business torts. Loudoun business torts include fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, civil theft, interference with a contractual relationship or business opportunity, unfair competition, and misappropriation of a trade secret.
At Beckman Schmalzle Georgelas & Ross PLC, we are able to help you protect your business by using these causes of action as a tool to defend your business and your assets. We also recognize that suing a client or vendor is not always the best answer for your business. Like a high school kid, a business does not want to get the wrong reputation around town. The attorneys at Beckman Schmalzle are experienced business owners. We can talk with you about all your options and help you make the tough decisions that face business owners every day. Sometimes a firm letter can get the job done. Sometimes a complaint is all it takes. Sometimes a full lawsuit is necessary. Sometimes things can be done well in advance to prevent you from you getting into this situation in the first place. Sometimes it is best to leave well enough alone.
We care about your business at Beckman Schmalzle Georgelas & Ross PLC. We are part of the Loudoun County business community and we take that privilege and responsibility seriously. We want to help this community grow and thrive. We are not going to tell you to pursue an action just to make more work for us. When you come to the office to meet with us, we are going to listen and offer counsel that will assist you in making the best possible decision for your business. We will give you the tools to make the best decision for today and for tomorrow. Whether that decision involves legal action or remodeling your contract, you can count on us to put your interests first.
