As a Virginia attorney with a mix of business and litigation clients, I am often engaged by businesses to assess the viability of litigation claims. The first step in that assessment is ensuring that the client understands what it would have to establish in order to succeed in a court of law. Whether a business seeks to pursue litigation or has just received notice that it has been sued, it is important that it understand the nature of the claims. With that in mind, this blog will feature a post each week (over the next six weeks) on a different Virginia business litigation claim.
Part 1: Misappropriation of Trade Secrets (under the Virginia Trade Secrets Act)
Part 2: Breach of Covenant Not to Compete
Part 3: Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Part 4: Tortious Interference with a Contract
Part 5: Conspiracy to Injure a Business (under the Virginia conspiracy statute)
Part 6: Employer Liability for Employees’ Actions
Stay tuned! Part 1 of this blog’s Virginia Business Litigation Claims series will start next week!
