Business owners know that the success of any particular venture often relies on people: both those the company employs and the ones it serves. Sometimes, however, good workers and strong client relationships are not enough and businesses have to rely on one another to meet their goals. In a perfect world, transactions between businesses would take place in a smooth, orderly and mutually beneficial manner. Unfortunately, they don’t always turn out that way.

There are a number of legal theories under which an Alabama company can seek redress for injuries caused to it by another business. The strength of a claim under any of these and other theories depends on various factors, not the least of which are the particulars of a given dispute. Nevertheless, it is important that a company seek the counsel of an experienced business attorney in pursuing legal action.
Unfair competition practices are subject to civil – and in some cases – criminal penalty under state laws that are strictly enforced in order to root out illegal restraints on trade. In addition, negligence, fraud, deceit and conversion (a company’s wrongful possession or disposition of another’s property) are just a few of the business tort claims that can be utilized to defend an entity’s interests.
Intentional interference with contract or business relations is another available tort claim under Alabama law where one business wrongfully interferes with another’s transactions or contracts with existing customers. Other important tools under Alabama law include include the right, depending upon the circumstances, to enforce or avoid non-competition agreements and non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements with employees and/or other companies. Similarly, the Alabama Trade Secrets Act seeks to encourage commercial development by ensuring that a business’s trade secrets remain its own.
