Salt Lake City Business Torts & Securities Litigation Attorney

Not every business dispute can be resolved by looking at the terms — or lack thereof — in a contract. Larsen & Rico attorneys regularly handle complex business litigation matters for clients ranging from small local businesses with hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake to global corporations with millions of dollars hanging in the balance. We’ve represented clients throughout the United States, from our home state of Utah to courtrooms in Los Angeles, New York City and Houston.

Generally, business torts arise out of fraud, misrepresentation or negligence claims, but can include a variety of issues that occur in commercial transactions and business operations, such as:

  • Unfair competition
  • Disparagement
  • Wrongful interference with business interests
  • Interference with economic relations
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Theft of corporate opportunity
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Breach of duty of loyalty
  • Fraudulent nondisclosure
  • Injurious falsehood
  • Fraudulent concealment
  • Fraudulent inducement
  • Conversion
  • Trespass
  • Securities fraud and litigation
  • Abuse of process

In addition, many claims that are allowed under statute fall under the general category of business torts, including intellectual property claims, deceptive trade practices, theft of trade secrets, and federal and state antitrust claims. Disputes between shareholders, partners, and members of LLCs and other closely held companies are also forms of litigation that are often considered business torts.

State and Federal Securities Litigation

  • Shareholder disputes and derivative litigation
  • SEC investigations and proceedings
