Civil Fraud

Civil, or commercial, fraud is the term used to describe civil litigation which involves allegations of dishonesty or deceit by one or more of the parties usually in business transactions. 

Examples of civil or commercial fraud are where one party alleges that the other deliberately misrepresented facts to induce it to enter into an agreement or where one party is alleged to have forged or fabricated documents to gain some financial advantage.  

High standards of proof are required and there is no substitute for experience and proven expertise when a party is either making allegations of deceit or is on the receiving end of them.
