No matter how large or small your California company is, protecting it from fraud may feel like an overwhelming task. Fraud may lead to devastating financial consequences, especially if you are not sure how to navigate all the legal aspects. At Cadden & Fuller LLP, we know that you need a comprehensive strategy to address fraud, and we have helped many clients successfully overcome related issues.
There are several different actions that may constitute business fraud. You may experience a situation where someone makes false statements about your company. Another example is a contract dispute where you may not agree with another party about the terms of your arrangement. You could also face a circumstance where one of your employees or shareholders engages in fraudulent activity. Even when the actual details of the fraud appear to be minor, the situation may have far-reaching effects that present challenges to your entire company.
Investment fraud is another issue your company may experience. This situation may be extremely complex when it involves shareholders or members of a legal partnership. Disputes about real estate contracts or financial transactions may also occur. Another area of business fraud is unfair business practices. This may refer to things such as misleading advertising or noncompliance issues.
There may be times when you need to file a lawsuit against another party that is engaging in fraudulent activities that threaten your business. If you are in a situation where one of your employees commits fraud, you may need to prepare to defend your company in litigation that another party brings against you. In either case, gathering comprehensive data and preparing a legal strategy may help protect your company's assets throughout a fraud lawsuit.
