What Is a Business Tort?

Business torts, like business fraud, involve deception or misrepresentation which results in economic harm to a business. Whereas business fraud results in harm done directly to a business, torts do harm to assets which are less tangible, such as to a business' ability to form new contractual relationships or expected profits from the continuance of existing contractual relationships.
