Commercial Fraud

There are many different definitions and circumstances that amount to business fraud legally, and these include everything from a director overstating company profits to procure investment, false accounting with the intention of misleading shareholders, failing to prevent tax evasion, and making a gain at the expense of another through a negligent and dishonest act. The experience of our lawyers will enable them establish whether or not your claim of commercial fraud (whether this has been made by you or against you) has the potential to be successful.

If a claimant for commercial fraud makes a successful claim, the court can be asked to do a number of things including awarding damages, enforcing the commercial understanding, rescind the contract if applicable, and finally order the return of property or assets on which the claim was made.
