Business Torts

When no contract outlines the responsibilities of individuals or companies involved in a business dispute, Utah law may still offer relief through a business tort. If a fraud claim cannot be filed directly, the issue may be handled as a claim for fraudulent omission or fraudulent non-disclosure. Establishing a claim for an omission, act of negligence, or intentional act in civil court can be much more difficult and more complicated than other business litigation. It is therefore important that the party work with an attorney who has the trial experience, legal knowledge, and commitment to investigate and effectively address every option on behalf of the client.

At Magleby Cataxinos & Greenwood, lawyers regularly handle complex and unusual business litigation, representing clients in cases ranging from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars in size. As members of a small and tightly focused practice, after assessing the merits of a case, the attorneys work collaboratively to assertively pursue their clients’ interests.
