Tortious interference with contractual relations is known by different other names. Tortious interference with contractual relations is also termed as unlawful interference with contractual relations, interference with a contractual relationship, interference with contract, inducement of breach of contract, or procurement of breach of contract. Tortious interference refers to a third party’s intentional interference or inducement of a contracting party to break a contract. Such inducement thereby causes damage to the relationship between the contracting parties. In tortious interference a tortfeasor convinces a party to breach the contract against one of the contracting parties, or the tortfeasor disrupts the ability of one of the contracting parties. As a result the promised performance is affected and ultimately results in breach of contract.
