Any company transacting business in Virginia for any length of time knows that disputes often involve allegations of fraud, deceit, and misrepresentation. A common litigation tactic by unscrupulous plaintiffs' attorneys is to add a claim for fraud to an ordinary breach-of-contract case, in the hopes of enabling the recovery of punitive damages and attorneys' fees. When a party alleges the existence of fraud in a commercial litigation matter, it can have far-reaching implications for all involved. Whether our client has been defrauded and damaged by another or improperly accused of fraud, our skilled business fraud litigation lawyers handle each case with the same goal: to protect the rights and interests of our clients. We routinely get unsubstantiated fraud claims thrown out of court during a proceeding's earliest stages.
When facing or bringing a fraud claim in Virginia, it is important that you retain an experienced local lawyer who understands the laws governing fraud and knows how to navigate those laws to obtain the results you need. At BerlikLaw, we are committed to defending our client’s assets and commercial interests. Our attorneys have years of experience handling a wide variety of fraud claims, including claims for negligent misrepresentation, constructive fraud, and fraudulent omission (i.e., fraud by silence), in both state and federal courts across Virginia and the District of Columbia.
Our experienced litigators and trial lawyers understand that no two cases are exactly alike. We approach expert witnesses, investigators, and the court with the mindset that every case requires meticulous preparation and a creative strategy in order to obtain optimal results.
