Wolcott, CT asked in Personal Injury, Business Law and Medical Malpractice for Connecticut

Q: Can my firm sue a medical practice for the misdeeds of one of their principal doctors against our firm's CEO?

After our CEO and his wife got into a big fight, a doctor who served as our client's Chairman of the Board, called his Marriage Counselor to obtain confidential information shared during counseling sessions. The doctor then shared that information with the client's CEO. As a result, my firm lost a valuable contract. We'd like to sue his medical practice on the basis of at least one of the following charges:

invasion of privacy,

wrongful (tortious) interference of business relationships,

malpractice,

breach of fiduciary duty, and

infliction of emotional distress.

A: Possibly for breach of the fiduciary duty to the corporation. Contact Michael Koskoff would be my suggestion. Feel free to give him my name.

Do not discuss this further on public sites.

All the best.
