Fraud

Fraud exists when there has been a "misrepresentation or concealment with reference to some fact material to a transaction that is made with knowledge of its falsity or in reckless disregard of its truth or falsity and with the intent to deceive another." Attorneys for Travis Law Group have represented numerous clients in a wide variety of civil fraud cases.

In one case, a developer bought property after he was told that the design of a certain project had been approved by the city/municipality. It had not been approved, nor would it have been, because a portion of the property was in a flood plain. Attorneys for Travis Law Group obtained a substantial settlement for our client (the developer) in this case.

In another case, a distributor of automatic doors spent large sums of money to expand into additional territories based upon the representations by the manufacturer that those territories would be the distributor's territories. After the distributor stretched its finances to achieve the growth required by the expansion, the manufacturer terminated the distributor, took over the territories for itself and attempted to take over the distributor itself by hiring its employees and doing business for the distributor's clients. Attorneys for Travis Law Group obtained a jury verdict on behalf of the distributor for fraud in an amount over $6,000,000.

Our attorneys represented an investor against a company that misled the investor into selling her stock options back to the company shortly before the company went public. The company failed to disclose this important transaction to the investor. Attorneys for Travis Law Group prevailed on behalf of our client with a multimillion dollar verdict and settlement.

Our attorneys have represented the plaintiffs and the defendants in numerous commercial fraud cases. The forgoing examples are but a few.
