What is general business?

Business fraud, is the deception to cause a person to give up property or some lawful right. It is the trusted and valued employee who generally commits business fraud. When frauds are discovered, there is often shock and disbelief that they could have committed such an act. The perpetrator of business fraud could be “the person next door.”

In most cases, offenders do not view stealing from companies as harmful; they may think that the crime was victimless; and they do not view their theft as being devastating or costly to the business. Many frauds occur because the opportunity exists and the perpetrator does not believe he/she will be caught.

The cost of fraud to businesses is difficult to estimate because not all fraud and abuse is discovered, not all uncovered fraud is reported, and civil or criminal action is not always pursued.

Our firm has handled many types of business fraud cases such as antitrust price fixing, breach of contract, patents and theft of trade secrets.
