SAN DIEGO INTERFERENCE WITH BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP ATTORNEYS

Law firm’s business
Competition for clients in San Diego is strong. The privilege of free competition means a competitor is free to divert business to himself as long as he uses fair and reasonable means. The law, of course, prohibits methods of disrupting or diverting the business relationship of another which fall outside the boundaries of fair competition. A wrongful interference with a business relationship occurs when a third-party intentionally disrupts the relationship through violence, misrepresentation, unfounded litigation, defamation, trade libel, trade mark infringement, or some statutory violation that causes you or your company harm. Such conduct can give rise to claims intentional or negligent interference with a business relationship, also referred to as interference with prospective economic relations.

Intentional Interference with a Business Relationship

  • That plaintiff and a third party were in an economic relationship that probably would have resulted in an economic benefit to plaintiff;
  • That defendant knew of the relationship;
  • That defendant intended to disrupt the relationship;
  • That defendant engaged in wrongful conduct, such as misrepresentation, fraud, or violation of statute;
    That the relationship was disrupted;
  • That plaintiff was harmed; and
  • That defendant’s wrongful conduct was a substantial factor in causing plaintiff’s harm. Youst v. Longo, 43 Cal. 3d 64, 71, fn. 6 (1987).

Negligent Interference with a Business Relationship

  • That plaintiff and a third party were in an economic relationship that probably would have resulted in a future economic benefit to plaintiff;
  • That defendant knew, or should have known, of the relationship;
  • That defendant knew or should have known that this relationship would be disrupted if defendant failed to act with reasonable care;
  • That defendant failed to act with reasonable care;
  • That defendant engaged in wrongful conduct, such as misrepresentation, fraud, or violation of statute;
    That the relationship was disrupted;
  • That plaintiff was harmed; and
  • That defendant’s wrongful conduct was a substantial factor in causing plaintiff’s harm. North American Chemical Co. v. Superior Court, 59 Cal. App. 4th 764, 786 (1997).
Notably, conduct that rises to the level of inference of a business relationship, may also mean other theories of recovery are available, such as causes of action for fraud, intellectual property infringement, interference with contact, or unfair business practices. If you or your business have suffered harm in any of these respects, contact an attorney right away to protect your rights.

We have built our success on nearly 30 years of combined experience and have a proven track-record. It’s no accident. We work exceptionally hard to obtain extraordinary results for our clients.

We are selective. We limit the number of cases we accept at any given time to ensure that our clients’ cases receive the extra time and effort needed to achieve extraordinary results.
