Attorneys Litigating Tortious Interference Claims
Tortious interference claims may arise when a party unlawfully interferes with an existing contract or prospective business relations. Either scenario can result in a lost deal, rejected bid, or canceled contract that otherwise would have come to fruition. Invariably, such a loss can result in losses of thousands, millions, or even billions of dollars. Businesses large and small may find themselves in a situation where a contract is, to their bewilderment, unilaterally terminated without any warning, despite a lack of complaints and a positive working history.
Other times, a business relationship that has been fostered and developed for months—or even years—comes to a sudden, unexplained end, such as a “decision” by the other party to “go in a different direction”. Once the smoke clears, they come to learn that someone has unlawfully interfered, undermining the contract or relationship.

The Dallas attorneys at Lyons & Simmons, LLP have prosecuted and defended tortious interference claims for businesses and individuals with millions of dollars on the line, such as cases involving fraudulent conduct or representations alleged to have led to contractual termination or the abandonment of a business relationship.
Interference With Prospective Contracts
While tortious interference deals with claims made when a contract is already in place, there is another category for relationships that have not yet been made official. Interference with prospective contracts deals with just that—attempting to prevent a contract from being agreed to by two parties.
As business disputes go, this can be rather malicious. It can be difficult enough to obtain new business through traditional channels. Agreeing to a deal can represent a major milestone for a company and, perhaps, be the difference between success or failure. When unlawful interference causes prospective contracts to fall through, legal action may be necessary in some cases.
