Almost every competitive business is, to some degree, about interfering with competitors’ contracts and prospective contracts. If your competitor has good customers, you want to make them your own. If your competitor is on the verge of landing an important deal, you may want nothing more than to swoop in and take that prospective deal away. Those are the sharp-elbowed rules of the game, right? Maybe… maybe not. In certain circumstances, such interference is acceptable, even desirable. However, if the interference falls into the hazy area that the law deems “improper,” liability and significant damages can follow. This session will help you, your business, or your clients navigate the choppy waters of “tortious interference with contract.”
