List of Potential Claims in Colorado Business Disputes

When a business dispute arises, it’s often best to work backwards from potential claims that could eventually be asserted in a lawsuit.  Below is a list of some of the more common claims that might apply to a business dispute:

-       Breach of Contract

-       Unjust Enrichment

-       Negligence (including professional negligence by attorneys, CPAs, engineers, etc.)

-       Negligent or Fraudulent Misrepresentation

-       Breach of Fiduciary Duty

-       Civil Conspiracy

-       Civil Theft

-       Theft of Trade Secrets

-       Intentional Interference with Contract (or Prospective Contract)

-       Libel or Slander

Less frequently, businesses may have viable claims under state or federal antitrust laws, the Colorado Consumer Protection Act, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or other statutes. 

Whenever a business dispute arises, business owners should consult an attorney to determine what viable claims the business may assert—or that may be asserted against it.  I’ve represented multiple start-ups and small businesses in a wide range of litigation, from breach of fiduciary duty and fraud to antitrust and RICO claims.  In some cases, I’ve represented businesses on a contingency-fee basis, allowing the business to pursue viable claims without paying tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys’ fees up front.  Contact me at (303) 800-8237 or jvail@vail-law.com to discuss your situation and litigation options today.
