BUSINESS TORTS & FRAUD

Most businesses are separate legal entitles that are distinct from their owners or shareholders.  Yet, they can only act through their agents and employees, who are people.  And people make mistakes.  Sometimes, those mistakes are accidental or negligent.  People also do things intentionally, however, and when they cause another to rely on what was stated, suddenly there can be a case for fraud.  Kim Vaughan Lerner LLP has litigated many cases involving claims of fraudulent, deceptive, or bad-faith practices, some of them intertwined with complex contracts and where the entities are acting through many different agents, from employees to owners to boards of directors.
