Fraud Litigation

Lindsay Kenney’s fraud litigation lawyers have extensive experience investigating, defending and prosecuting claims involving allegations of fraud.  We act for government agencies, private businesses, crown corporations, professionals, and individuals when they have a legal problem involving fraud, and we have appeared at all levels of Court on behalf of our clients.  Our lawyers have obtained some of the highest jury awards for punitive damages ever awarded for fraud claims in Canada.  

Lindsay Kenney’s fraud litigation lawyers include criminal law defence lawyers and commercial and insurance defence litigators and can therefore assist with matters involving civil fraud claims that are being pursued by the Crown separately as criminal charges. We also the expertise to educate and assist persons in dealings with the police.

We are experienced in the following areas, among others:

  • Insurance Fraud
  • Business/Commercial Fraud
  • Employee Dishonesty/Embezzlement
  • Real Estate Fraud
  • Bankruptcy Fraud
  • Breach of Trust/Fiduciary Duty
  • Securities Fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Ponzi/Pyramid Schemes

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 have obtained Mareva Injunctions to freeze assets and Anton Piller Orders (civil search warrants) to ensure the necessary evidence is preserved in our cases.  We know how to find hidden assets and unravel a conspiracy.

We also have significant experience assisting insurers with systemic and “one-off” insurance fraud, and protecting victims of business fraud, especially in the formation, sale, and purchase of businesses, including shareholders disputes and in real estate transactions. We 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.
