Businesses exist in a state of constant competition. Competition for resources, competition for employees, and competition for market-share. Sometimes businesses push competition to far.
If another business interferes with a contractual relationship, it is called tortious interference. Florida law provides that if you have a business relationship and the defendant knows of that relationship and it intentionally interferes with that relationship and causes you to lose the business, you may be entitled to damages.
Another common issue that businesses face is disagreement among shareholders. The shareholder or operating agreement is the constitution of a business. It provides you with rights and holds members accountable. Sometimes a business partner will start up a competitive side hustle which is a breach of the duty of loyalty. You have rights to enjoin (shut down) the side hustle and recover damages for any loss of revenue or good will the business loses as a result.
