Unfortunately, fraud occurs in a variety of corporate and consumer settings. Often the fraud perpetrated on our clients is not immediately apparent. Through investigative due diligence and discovery, however, we have found that both individuals and corporations fall prey to fraudulent schemes, often in the investment context. Sometimes fraud can be more benign than the classic Ponzi scheme but it usually difficult to detect. Fortunately, Bast Amron has extensive experience uncovering, investigating, prosecuting, and recovering losses from fraud.
The firm handles fraud cases both inside and outside the bankruptcy context. The firm’s experience includes prosecution and defense of fraudulent transfer actions, fraudulent business transactions, fraud involving questions of accounting and legal malpractice, investors’ fraud, directors’ and officers’ liability and securities and regulatory issues, including Ponzi schemes.
