Fort Lauderdale Business Attorney Fighting for You When There is Fraud or Theft

Fort Lauderdale corporate fraud and antitrust violation lawyer

Lawyer for Embezzlement, Fraud, and Theft

On a daily basis, business owners are confronted with the challenge of ensuring that their businesses remain successful and financially viable. The task of effectively managing a business is difficult under any circumstances, but it becomes especially hard when competitors, partners, or employees are engaging in illegal and unfair practices that may damage the business. Fortunately, it is possible to put a stop to these damaging practices with the help of an experienced business law attorney.

At The Elliot Legal Group, P.A., we know that not everyone in the business world is dealing in good faith. If your business is being harmed by fraud or anti-competitive practices, we can help you take legal action against the responsible parties. With almost 20 years of litigation experience, we have the knowledge and skill to help you address complicated issues and stand up against any competitor, big or small.

Fighting Business Fraud and Other Related Offenses

Fraudulent and dishonest behavior both within your business and outside of it can be extremely detrimental to your financial bottom line, your reputation, and the future success of your business. We can help you fight many forms of fraud and other similar offenses, including:

  • Embezzlement - Embezzlement occurs when a business partner or employee misappropriates business assets that they have been entrusted with, usually for their own personal gain.
  • Falsified accounting - A partner or employee may attempt to falsify business accounts to hide evidence of embezzlement or to mislead shareholders and potential investors or buyers.
  • False or misleading advertising - A competitor may try to manipulate the market by making false claims about a product or service they offer, or by infringing on your trademark in an attempt to pass off a product as one of yours.
  • Theft of trade secrets - A competitor, or former employee, may attempt to procure your business's trade secrets through hacking, espionage, or other fraudulent means. The Florida Uniform Trade Secrets Act provides civil and criminal penalties to protect you from theft of trade secrets. See Fla. Stat., Chapter 688.
  • Civil Theft – Florida's Civil Theft Statute is a powerful tool to recover against those who contract and refuse to pay or otherwise steal you or your businesses property. See Fla. Stat. § 772.11. In the event you prevail in a suit for civil theft, you may be entitled to not only three times the value of the property stolen but also attorneys' fees.
