What is the business tort of misrepresentation?

In an earlier post we raised the subject of business torts, which reflect the possibility that like an individual, a legal entity such as a business can engage in wrongful conduct that is actionable in court in Ohio. We began our examination of business torts with intentional interference with business relationships. In this installment, we will consider another legal theory under which a business can find itself the defendant in a civil lawsuit: misrepresentation.

Creating a successful business in Ohio

Ohio is a great state for entrepreneurs. Small businesses open up seemingly every day, and many of them do quite well. But unfortunately, many also fail. Seeing these businesses fold may discourage you from creating a company of your own. There are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to create a successful business.

Rights of Ohio corporations

The state of Ohio has written out in explicit detail the rights of corporations in the Ohio Revised Code, Title XVII. While many of the regulations are rather obvious and straightforward, such as trademarks and patents, there are nuances that can become quite complex. As such, it is important for businesses to understand their rights and what they can do if said rights are violated.
