FRAUD
Penetrate the Confusion,
Relieve the Burden,
Mend the Loss.
We sue for fraud, which is any deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual, and engenders both civil liability and criminal punishment.

Fraud is widespread, victimizing businesses and individuals across all industries. Recent economic events have both confirmed and exposed the ubiquity of fraud throughout all aspects of financial services, consumer affairs, and commercial operations. Although scams and hoaxes for financial gain are actionable frauds, and victims of fraud have civil remedies to recuperate lost funds, few law firms maintain a practice dedicated to investigating, litigating, and remedying fraud.

The primary focus of Bernhard Law Firm is to vindicate the victims of fraud.

We conduct fraud investigations and litigate fraud lawsuits to obtain financial amelioration. However, our practice extends beyond financial compensation to replace loss with wholeness, obscurity with clarity, and confusion with empowerment and stability. We represent investors and consumers across Florida, ranging from small individual investors and purchasers to sophisticated high-net-worth clients and institutions. We have significant practice in investor and borrower litigations against financial institutions, securities issuers, underwriters, and other businesses that have committed misrepresentation or other fraudulent acts. We implement our in-depth knowledge of the financial services industry to successfully develop, present, and aggressively prosecute these cases and recover investment losses. Our size and focused practice allow us to take action quickly and be constantly available.

The pathway to fraud resolution is through the courtroom.

We litigate fraud claims in all manifestations, from case initiation and investigation through trial and appeal. Our significant experience with sophisticated fraud schemes, our capacity in managing complex and multi-district litigation, and our ability to deploy resources effectively to address case priorities and respond to geographically shifting fraud problems all uniquely qualify us to address any fraud matter. We can handle large quantities of financial documents and business records, and we effectively utilize alternative crime enforcement remedies, including the Civil Remedies for Criminal Practices Act and criminal restitution options. Upon appeal, we develop legal policy to strengthen the rules on fraud and constrict loopholes to escape liability and conviction.
