Fraud And Financial Charges

Toronto Fraud Lawyers

At Neuberger & Partners LLP, we are experienced in working alongside corporate and civil lawyers in protecting the interests of business clients accused of fraud, breach of trust and theft. As an experienced and highly-skilled criminal defence firm serving the Greater Toronto Area and other regional Ontario communities, we leverage our resources, knowledge and experience to protect the rights of our clients at every stage.

Fraud cases can be complex and often involve a wide variety of documents at a high-volume. Our Toronto fraud lawyers take a multi-disciplinary approach, consulting with leading experts such as forensic accountants, auditors, actuaries, market and tax specialists and private investigators to aid in the comprehensive evaluation of evidence and defence of our clients. Since 1993, we have developed a record of success* in the areas of white collar crime, fraud, breach of trust and embezzlement.

Defending Your Interests at Any Stage

Often we are engaged to defend charges related to corporate, business dealings and bankruptcy that have deteriorated to the point of criminal investigation. Our services have been sought at the early stages of investigation including receivership and bankruptcy. In other cases, creditors or shareholders that allege unlawful diversion of corporate assets will seek private intervention that often brings into consideration criminal liability.

Our experienced trial lawyers have represented clients charged with fraud or other related financial crimes, including:

  • Bank and mortgage fraud
  • Lottery fraud
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Securities fraud
  • Cheque fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Conspiracy

In each of these cases, we will stand by you and your business interests in order to protect your personal and professional reputation. Even at the early stages of a criminal investigation, we prepare our cases with a view to going to trial thoroughly and diligently. At every turn, our lawyers will carefully explain your situation and your options so you can make informed decisions about your case.
