A variety of tort claims often arise when companies become embroiled in commercial disputes. Tortious interference, unfair competition, and commercial defamation are often included in suits that arise out of commercial relationships. Barnes & Thornburg LLP is experienced in gathering and presenting the evidence that is crucial to succeed both in bringing and defending these claims. Done right, these claims can be an important part of a litigation strategy. Similarly, our experience with these claims allows us to counsel clients on the real exposure faced by those clients who have been sued for these claims. Effectively defending against these claims often requires the type of experience and judgment we have. In addition to the Firm’s litigation experience, a Firm lawyer has had the honor of teaching business torts classes to students at the Notre Dame law school.
