Commercial Fraud

Ten years ago, lawyers in Canada reported that 10% of all legal claims involved some kind of fraud. A decade later, that number has steadily increased, especially in the commercial sense as more and more opportunities for fraud continue to appear. The effects of fraud are wide ranging, and can cost individuals, companies and groups dearly when it comes to money and property as well as time and stress. Dealing with commercial fraud can seem like a daunting task, especially to an individual faced with the legal resources of a large company or wealthy party engaged in fraudulent practices. With proper legal assistance from commercial fraud litigators at Ganapathi Law, those who have been wrongly accused of fraud, or who have been the victims of commercial fraud can fight against the injustice of fraud and get the compensation they deserve.

What is commercial fraud?

Commercial fraud is any instance where corporate executives engage in a deceptive practice or blatant violation of the law in order to gain an unfair advantage over a competitor or unsuspecting individual. Those individuals or entities engaged in fraudulent practices do so primarily to enrich themselves at the expense of others. The unfortunate truth about fraud committed on this scale is the frequency with which it occurs. However, not all commercial fraud investigations are warranted, which is why legal representation should immediately be secured even if accusations of fraud are false. In a case where you have been the victim of commercial fraud, it is also advisable to seek out legal representation before bringing your claims to light.

There are a number of ways for lawyers to fight against commercial fraud. How a legal team chooses to make their case against a party accused of fraud really depends on the nature of their fraudulent acts. There are a number of different types of commercial fraud, ranging from wilful misrepresentation, conspiracy, bribery, inducing breach of contract, breach of trust and many more. Fraud may seem like a straightforward crime, but in a lot of instances, it is far easier for a lawyer to prove something like negligence rather than fraud. This is because the seriousness associated with an accusation of fraud often leads to vicious legal battles. This is especially true in the case of large scale corporations or high level executives with a great deal riding on their established reputations. When pursuing a claim of fraud against an entity on this scale, it is important to have legal representation that is willing to do what is necessary to establish the type of fraud being alleged and pursue those allegations with all their resources and expertise.
