Protecting Your Reputation

Our experienced lawyers will aggressively pursue a cause of action if you have encountered any of the following business fraud issues:

  • Overstating or understating profits
  • Understating expenses
  • Defrauding an employer
  • Violating a covenant not-to-compete
  • Nondisclosure issues affecting the business’s value
  • Disclosure of trade secrets

We will fight to keep your reputation intact as we aggressively protect your valuable business interests.

Fraudulent Profits?

Business fraud occurs when a seller of a business understates or misrepresents the profitability of the business or understates the overhead expenses. Such misstatements may justify the filing of a lawsuit against the seller for business fraud.

The effect of these sorts of false statements can have a severe impact on your ability to make a profit. Our attorneys can tell you whether you were the victim of fraudulent misrepresentation. If you have been victimized, we will aggressively fight for you in court, and pursue fair and just compensation. We handle all types of business fraud litigation, including claims of white collar crime.

Violations Of Covenants Not-To-Compete

Covenants not-to-compete are agreements that are made between an employer and an employee that prevent the employee from starting a competing business. These agreements are enforceable contracts in California. If a former employee is violating a covenant not-to-compete, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and work to effectively enforce the covenant.
