Our Fraud Law and Litigation Group, headed by Frank Potts, includes a former commercial crime prosecutor, criminal law defence lawyers, as well as commercial and insurance defence litigators. We are especially well suited to deal with civil fraud claims that are being dealt with at the same time as criminal charges, and have the expertise to educate and assist you in dealings with the police. Members of the group also teach criminal and fraud law.
LK Law’s fraud litigation lawyers build on their experience with up-to-date knowledge of current trends in fraud detection and litigation by regularly teaching at, and attending, national and international fraud seminars and conferences.
Our fraud lawyers in Vancouver and Langley believe the best defence in fraud matters is a good offence and will aggressively defend and prosecute false or inflated claims and ensure that the victims of business fraud accurately identify and end the problem, recover what can be recovered, and get their businesses back on track.
At LK Law, we work hard to help prevent ongoing losses due to fraud, and understand the importance of recovering lost monies in a cost effective manner. We use legal tools such as Mareva Injunctions to freeze assets and Anton Piller Orders (civil search warrants) to ensure the necessary evidence is preserved. We know how to find hidden assets and unravel a conspiracy. Our fraud lawyers have obtained for their clients some of the highest jury awards for punitive damages ever awarded against fraudsters in Canada.
Our insurance fraud lawyers in both Vancouver and Langley assist insurers in reducing their exposure to both “one-off” fraudsters and to systemic fraud by affirmatively defending and prosecuting claimant fraud, vehicle give ups, rate evasion and premium fraud, staged accident rings, and arson for profit.
In cases of alleged business fraud, our lawyers represent those who have been the victims of, or have been accused of business and/or employee fraud, and/or of misrepresentations, or breach of fiduciary duty, especially in the formation, sale, and purchase of businesses, including shareholders disputes and in real estate transactions.
