Professional counsel highly experienced in business tort cases
Our attorneys handle all types of litigation matters for Kansas companies. Frequent commercial tort claims include:
- Tortious interference — Intentional misconduct by one party designed to interfere with the business relationship between two other entities may be a tort under Kansas law. Damages caused by the intruding party may be recoverable even if an exact value of the lost business is not entirely determined.
- Corporate fraud — If damage results from a business using misrepresentation designed to induce particular action or inaction, a tort claim for fraud may be filed. Reliance on such false representation must, however, be reasonable under the circumstances.
- Trade secret misappropriation — The misappropriation of proprietary business information is prohibited by the Kansas Uniform Trade Secrets Act. A business may be held liable if it should have been known that valuable information from another firm has been unlawfully acquired. This sometimes occurs when a former employee uses information from their former company to gain a business advantage for the former employee or a new employer.
Peggs Wheeler is dedicated to helping businesses meet their continuing legal needs. We do this by seeking prompt resolutions wherever possible so that we can be the first call you make the next time a problem arises.
