Trust is the key to all business relationships. While there may be times where a misunderstanding or an honest disagreement leads to litigation, a dispute is significantly more difficult to deal with when there are allegations of fraud or misrepresentation. At the same time, many people employ the term “fraud” without understanding its precise legal meaning.
At Valiant Law, our experienced southern California fraud and misrepresentation attorneys can assist you with assessing your particular dispute and advise you on the appropriate steps to take next. Fraud often causes significant financial harm to a business. Whether you are the victim or the accused, it is important to have skilled representation at your side.
There are four basic kinds of fraud recognized by California law:
In some cases, notably claims for intentional misrepresentation, a successful plaintiff can seek punitive damages against the wrongdoer, in addition to any compensatory damages arising from the breach of contract. And even in cases where the evidence is insufficient to prove fraud–not every broken promise is a false promise or misrepresentation–an injured party may still be able to recover damages under tort or common law.
Fraud and misrepresentation encompass some of the most complicated areas of business law. Every fraud case is unique and requires developing an extensive factual record. That is why if you are involved in any business dispute that may involve fraud, it is important to engage the services of a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Valiant Law specializes in complex business and employment litigation, and we have the resources and the knowledge to provide you with an honest, professional assessment of your situation.
