Fraud and misappropriation can occur in a number of contexts that involve employees, other owners or vendors. The business owner that has been the victim of financial fraud must move quickly to recover those assets.

Remedies for Misappropriation and Fraud
An effective business litigation attorney knows how to track assets that were misappropriated or taken through financial fraud. These remedies may include pre-judgment attachment of assets, injunctions or other extraordinary remedies.
You may also file a lawsuit to recover damages for assets that were misappropriated or taken through financial fraud. When the misappropriation has been committed by another owner of a business, it is commonly grounds for expulsion or termination of an officer, director or manager.
Fraudulent Conveyance Lawyers
Moving assets to hide them from creditors or to put the assets beyond the reach of creditors is often a fraudulent conveyance. These transfers often occur between insiders and affiliates and are a type of fraud that can be pursued in a civil action.
