Tennessee Attorneys Handling Cases Involving Interferences with Contracts and Business Relationships

Representing clients in Nashville, Chattanooga, Memphis, and Jackson and throughout Tennessee in employment law matters

Everyone involved in business knows that the contracts you sign and the relationships you make are a major part of your success in your industry. When a third party intentionally interferes with your contracts or business relationships, the damage can be massive. At the law firm of Gilbert Russell McWherter Scott Bobbitt PLC, we understand the consequences these interferences can have on you. Our Tennessee employment law attorneys have extensive experience defending clients in wrongful or tortious interference cases. With offices located in Nashville, Chattanooga, Memphis, and Jackson, we are uniquely qualified to represent clients throughout the state in the most complex matters.

Interferences with contracts

While a breach of contract is unfortunately common, it is not only the parties involved in the contract that can be held liable when it is broken. A third party can intentionally cause one of the contracting parties to breach the contract, usually for the third party’s financial gain. In order to prove tortious interference, the wronged party must show that:

  • A valid contract existed
  • The third party had knowledge of the contract
  • The third party had something to gain from causing a breach of contract
  • The third party caused a contracting party to breach the contract
  • The contract was breached
  • The contracting parties suffered financial damage

With the help of a knowledgeable attorney at the Gilbert Firm, you can get the appropriate compensation for the damages caused by the breach. Do not let another party ruin an important contract. Your Tennessee employment law attorney can advise you on your rights and guide you through the legal process toward a successful resolution.

Interferences with business relationships

Often, business relationships are not based on written contracts but on oral agreements or a history of working together. If a third party tampers with these relationships, you may be able to hold that party liable. Interference with a business relationship can involve a breach of contract, but it more usually involves unfair business practices. In order to prove third party interference with a business relationship, you must show that:

  • A valid business relationship existed
  • The third party had knowledge of this relationship
  • The third party intentionally caused one party to harm or terminate the contract
  • The third party was not authorized to be involved in the relationship
  • The parties in the relationship suffered financial damage

Because business relations do not always involve written contracts, interference can be more difficult to prove. That is where the efficient and effective Tennessee employment law attorneys at the Gilbert Firm come in. We have the experience and skill to help you prove interference and get the compensation you deserve.
