Let Los Angeles Business Lawyers Advise You
If your business entered into a contract containing a fraudulent misrepresentation, it could put your company’s future at risk. It is important to understand where the fraud exists in your contract, as well as what possible liability exposure you may face. You need a knowledgeable business attorney with experience in California contract law to review your case.
Elements of Fraudulent Misrepresentation
If you believe you are party to a contract that contains an element of fraud, you may be justified in seeking to nullify that document. The first step is to understand what constitutes a fraudulent misrepresentation.
The three basic indications of a fraudulent misrepresentation are:
- A false representation was knowingly made, or was made irresponsibly without knowledge as to whether it was true or false.
- The false statement persuaded a second party into entering into a contract.
- The party being defrauded suffers a loss as a result of entering into the contract.
Contract law is detail oriented and can be extremely complex. Los Angeles business lawyers can review the contract in question and advise you on how to proceed.
Examples of Fraudulent Misrepresentation
Fraudulent misrepresentation can occur on both individual and corporate levels. These might all qualify as fraudulent misrepresentation:
- Advertising a product as “like new” when it is several years old
- Inflating sales figures or projections prior to a merger or acquisition
- Lying (intentionally or otherwise) about major defects, risks or liabilities
