There are numerous types of business fraud claims, some of the more common being:
- Ponzi Schemes
- Oil and Gas Fraud
- Embezzlement, and
- Securities Fraud
In each situation, the perpetrator takes advantage of the trust of the victims and disregards the laws intended to protect others. Although many times, the actions rise to a level of criminal conduct, our law firm maintains its focus on recovering the lost funds through aggressive litigation and collections. And even when the company has gone bankrupt, the civil court system provides an array of devices to recover lost investments or funds including aiding and abetting claims against control persons and banks, receivership, garnishment, and bankruptcy laws.
Sometimes, a dispute between partners can give rise to a Breach of Fiduciary Duty claim. This typically occurs when a managing partner misleads the others or misappropriates funds. And closely held companies which are successful may leave some early minor investors in their wake by diluting their interests or misleading them into improper sales of their stock.
Regardless of the problem, you should consult promptly with one of our attorneys to learn how the law protects you and if there are any deadlines for taking action. Call now for a free consultation.
