Tortious Interference with a Contractual Relationship

When one party, known as the tortfeasor, convinces another party with whom you have an established contractual relationship to violate the terms of your contract, or when the tortfeasor purposefully prevents that party from fulfilling the terms of your contract, this constitutes tortious interference with your contractual relationship. This could include, but is not limited to contracts such as non-compete clauses, non-solicitation agreements, purchase and sell agreements, vendor and distributor agreements or even the improper sharing of trade secrets.
