What Types of Business Fraud Cases Does Mickelsen Dalton Handle?

Fraudulent or negligent corporate practices can have devastating ramifications for affected consumers, stakeholders, and businesses. When leaders mismanage organizations, lie about goods and services, defraud insurers or the government, fail to uphold legally mandated accounting practices, or steal from a corporation’s finances, victims are often unaware of the fraud until it is too late.

At Mickelsen Dalton, we represent consumers, stockholders, and businesses that have been financially injured by insurers, pharmaceutical companies, banks, healthcare providers, mortgage brokers, manufacturers of defective goods, investment advisors, securities sellers, the organizers of Ponzi and other stock schemes, and other businesses. We represent clients in cases involving (but not limited to):

  • Accounting Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Bad Faith
  • Fraud against the government
  • Fraudulent business sales
  • Investment fraud, stock sales, and other investment schemes
  • Financial fraud (e.g., misappropriation of funds, forgery, etc.)
  • Shareholder, investor, and partnership disputes based on fraud
  • Mortgage and real estate fraud
  • Other fraud matters

Why Do I Need an Experienced Corporate Fraud Attorney?

Large, affluent corporations often gamble on the fact that consumers and other businesses will be reluctant to seek legal action when defrauded, often out of fear of incurring exorbitant legal expenses. However, at Mickelsen Dalton, we represent corporate fraud victims on contingency, meaning we never charge a fee unless we successfully recover damages on an individual’s or business’s behalf. Further, we advance all litigation expenses while a case is ongoing.

Big businesses can be formidable opponents, as they often have vast resources to put towards significant legal fights. However, we have the means necessary to push back and seek to hold fraudulent entities and corporations accountable and financially liable.

From insurance bad faith to corporate fraud against the government (i.e., Qui Tam), as experienced corporate fraud lawyers, we are bold, tenacious litigators who will not hesitate to take on even the most prominent opponents.

What Potential Damages Can Be Recovered in A Corporate Fraud Lawsuit?

In commercial litigation matters, including breach of contracts, intellectual property infringement, fraud and unfair competition, contract disputes, and negligence claims, it is typically necessary to hire a financial expert to quantify damages, as each situation is unique, and losses can vary significantly. For example, in the case of a business, experts will typically evaluate several factors, including lost profits and/or lost business value, taking into consideration expenses, taxes, assets, investments, and a wide range of financial documentation.

Calculating the components of damages (such as lost profits, interest, and other damages) can be difficult to determine in corporate fraud cases, and a victim can easily be shortchanged if losses are not accurately evaluated. To help ensure this does not occur, we may retain financial analysts and experts so our clients have the best chances of recovering everything to which they are rightfully entitled.

What Should I Do If I Suspect My Partner Is Stealing from Our Company?

Corporate fraud can have serious consequences, including financial penalties, criminal charges, and even incarceration. If you suspect your partner is taking money under a business pretext for personal expenses or diverting funds to another venture, this is considered fraud. If you relied on your partner’s deceitful words and suffered damages, you may be entitled to compensation. If a business associate stole money or assets, he or she might be guilty of embezzlement. Lastly, if a partner breaks their fiduciary duty to protect the company, they may be liable for financial damages for breaching their responsibilities.

It is critical to obtain evidence that theft or fraud is occurring and to identify all involved parties, as it is vital to eliminate the possibility of extraneous factors, such as accounting or clerical errors. If you have proof a partner is stealing from your company and want to explore your legal options for recovering lost revenue and assets, contact our office to schedule a complimentary consultation. We can listen to the facts of your case and advise on the best course of action for meeting your objectives.
