Fraud & Misrepresentation
The average business loses 5 percent of its revenue to fraud each year, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. More than one-fifth of these cases result in losses of more than $1 million, and small businesses tend to suffer disproportionately large losses.
Companies who have been victims of fraud and misrepresentation deserve fair relief. Given the stakes at play in these document-intensive, hard-to-prove cases, it’s imperative to engage experienced counsel who know how to fight – and how to win.
Stueve Siegel Hanson has built a solid record of success in fraud and misrepresentation matters. We use relentless fact-finding techniques to pin down the evidence essential to winning; we call upon the latest technology to illustrate fraudulent schemes. Our litigation savvy has generated favorable outcomes for clients in various industries, including securities, health care, software, manufacturing, insurance and government contracting.
We have represented clients of all sizes, from individuals to small businesses to international corporations. Indeed, we achieved a favorable settlement for Seaboard Corp., a multinational agribusiness conglomerate, in a lawsuit alleging fraud, misappropriation and other claims against Grindrod Limited, the largest logistics and shipping company in South Africa. With nine figures on the line, Grindrod settled weeks before trial.
Because Stueve Siegel Hanson handles all business litigation on a results-based contingency fee model, you owe no fees unless and until you win. This can make the pursuit of these claims possible for individuals and small to mid-sized businesses who may not have the resources to devote to extensive and lengthy litigation.
