Fraud is a global business threat with potentially devastating repercussions. From employee theft and securities fraud to Ponzi schemes and white collar crime, our Fraud Law Group quickly assesses fraudulent activity and its business implications. We then mobilize our highly specialized, results-oriented resources and networks to expedite the most cost-effective damage mitigation and asset investigation and recovery plan.
As pioneers in the fraud law arena and one of Canada's largest civil fraud practice groups, we have forged long-standing relationships with law enforcement, forensic consultants, private investigators, external auditors and international asset tracers who work on all aspects of the fraud investigation and recovery process. Our Group proactively advises our clients on risk assessment and fraud prevention strategies. We also are committed to continually educating our clients: we regularly publish, teach and speak about civil fraud law developments.
