Fraud litigation is a civil lawsuit filed by one party against another for the second's fraudulent conduct. The attorneys at Gruber, Schwartz & Posnock, LLP in Newark, New Jersey, are particularly strong in offering litigation support for these types of cases.
By law, fraud is usually defined as an intentional misrepresentation of material fact made by one party with knowledge of its falsity to another party who is unaware of this knowledge. Lawyers must also prove the intention of inducing the other party to act or essentially give up something of value or a legal right. The other party's reliance on this purposeful misrepresentation must work to their detriment in terms of injury or damages in order for our fraud attorneys to help you.
Qualification for Fraud
To qualify as fraud, one party's omission or misrepresentation has to relate to an existing material fact, not a promise to perform some act in the future, unless the party that made the promise had no present intent to perform its promised act. It also could be the party had a positive intent not to perform it.
