Theft & Loss of Business


Corporate Opportunity Claim Doctrine: This is a doctrine that was established to protect the company from employees taking business opportunities for themselves which were offered to the company. This loyalty to the company is termed as a “fiduciary duty” and is owed to a company in order to prevent against theft of business. Unfortunately, it is very common in today’s society where a company’s employee attempts to steal business opportunities for themselves.
