Corporate Director and Officer Liability
Corporate officers and directors owe a high level of care to the corporation and the shareholders. This is known as a “fiduciary duty.” Often times tightly controlled corporations will engage in inappropriate activity that is illegal and deprives the shareholders of profits. Directors of corporations have the responsibility to take notice of certain acts going on inside a corporation and to inquire into certain things. A director cannot sit by and allow a corporate officer to injure the corporation through bad business practices. Many times the inappropriate acts of a corporate officer can be imputed to the corporation, i.e. the corporation can be held responsible for knowledge of the inappropriate act.
Many times corporations will engage in self-dealing, i.e. officers will set up corporations and then deal with the corporation to which they are an officer but the dealings may not be at arm’s length. Any relationship between a corporate officer’s owned corporation and a corporation of the officer should be carefully examined to make sure that inappropriate conduct is not occurring and that profits are not being thrown away.
Also, many times corporate officers and directors can exceed the scope of their authority thereby endangering a corporation. If you have been injured as a result of inappropriate management of a corporation, it is possible that you may have a cause of action against the corporation and/or its officers and directors. Please contact an attorney at The Law Offices of Randall D. Moore, PLLC today.
Medical Privacy Litigation
Under a relatively new law called the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), medical care providers are prohibited from disclosing medical information concerning patients without certain steps being taken. There are strict penalties for violation of this federal law. If you believe that your medical privacy has been violated by the unauthorized release of your medical records, you may have a cause of action.

Business torts include disparagement or injury to a businesses’ reputation, unfair competition, and interference with contracts. This can be seen many times where one business has a lucrative deal with another business, competitors will come in and try to undercut and move in on the deal. While fair trade and competition is part of the American system, interfering with the contract of another company is a violation that could subject the person interfering with the contract to civil remedies. We represent business tort cases on a contingency basis.
If your firm has suffered damage from disparagement, unfair competition, or interference with contracts, contact an attorney at The Law Offices of Randall D. Moore, PLLC
Piercing the Corporate Veil and Successor Liability
It is a common business practice to set up a series of corporations which are under capitalized, i.e. underfinanced and in essence are “sham corporations.” These sham corporations conduct business without any assets, incur liability, and when someone attempts to enforce a right, the business simply shuts down or files bankruptcy.
Many times, parent companies can be held responsible for the acts of these sham corporations. There are theories of liability, including joint business enterprise and joint venture, where a company can be held responsible for another company’s acts if they engaged in a common purpose and agreed to share profits. Often times there is fraud involved in the transaction and to the extent there are common shareholders and directors between these corporations, there may be a way to hold the successor or parent corporation liable.
