In today’s business world, instances of workplace fraud, breach of duty, unfair practices and even outright theft are occurring with greater frequency. From closely held companies to large multi-national corporations, these issues can affect a business entity of virtually any size. No employer is immune if greed meets the wrong opportunity.
Anyone—including trusted employees, partners, vendors, competitors, independent contractors, customers, and outsiders—can cause extensive harm by disclosing confidential information, stealing trade secrets or other confidential business information, converting property, committing workers’ compensation fraud, manipulating financial statements, embezzling funds or engaging in other deceptive business practices.
Phillips Lytle attorneys advise clients in preventive measures and represent businesses to address these improper and unlawful activities. We also advise and interact with prosecutorial and regulatory bodies to defend against or help rectify employee misconduct.
