Business Fraud

In business fraud, more so than almost any other area of business litigation, effective document analysis is the key. In many other disputes, there may be disagreement over the meaning of contracts or how a dispute should be resolved, but there is usually an assumption that the other party is reasonable enough that a resolution can be found.

In business fraud situations, trust between parties has broken down to such an extent that there is likely no trust left. One or both parties may believe that the other is lying and will not believe what it says without solid proof. Written documents, agreements and objective, verifiable facts can become as vitally important as they are in criminal trials.

Our Calgary business fraud litigation lawyers deal with all types of fraud, including:

  • Embezzlement
  • Theft
  • Appropriation of company assets
  • Altering financial documents
  • Misrepresentation of products or services

Our lawyers will be diligent in their investigation of what has happened and will do their best to resolve the issue and recapture your losses as quickly as possible.
