The business climate in New York is tough. It is competitive and extremely lucrative. It is not uncommon for your competition to engage in false advertising of their products or to say untrue statements about your business. When your business encounters an economic tort, such as slander, libel, disruption of your business relationship with a client or misrepresentation of authority by the client’s manager in a contract, your enterprise could experience significant financial losses.
