FRAUD/CORPORATE THEFT SAN JOSE

A LEADING BUSINESS ATTORNEY SAN JOSE LAW FIRM

fraud corporate theft a leading business attorney san jose law firm nick heimlich lawFraud comes in many forms. There are investment frauds, like Madoff, who are simply building pyramid schemes. There is failure to provide material information related to the sale of shares in a company. There are corporate officers, corporate founders, and even low level employees improperly using Company resources for personal expenses. When there are multiple shareholders this can be particularly troubling, as it effectively takes from one shareholder and gives to another without a similar or pro-rata distribution.

These issues often come up when the company runs out of money and people start to review bank statements and credit cards to see where money was spent. Attorney Nick Heimlich can work with you to assess the damage and help find ways to try to recoup your Company’s losses.

Don’t hesitate. These types of cases can be particularly challenging because companies do not realize that theft from an insider has occurred until the money has run out. Litigation Attorney Nick Heimlich finds it particularly rewarding when he has the opportunity help to put a Company back into a position of providing jobs and continuing to exist.

One of the key ways that a business can try to spot or minimize this type of fraud is to have an independent CPA or an audit of the company’s financials. It is critical that all shareholders believe that the CPA or auditor is truly independent and making a thorough examination because if parties do not trust the CPA or that the CPA is being thorough, then much of the value will be lost.

Another simple, but over overlooked way of finding this fraud is to limit the people who can write checks, issue payments or have company credit cards. Generally speaking, very few credit cards should be issued by small businesses as they often become a simple blank check used for everyday non-business items like gas, groceries, sporting tickets (without a client), alcohol, travel expenses, daily coffee (without meeting any client), and meals. Further, even if a credit card has been issued, someone other than the one issued the card should review each month’s statements and demand cash receipts and a business explanation for all charges. If documentation is not provided, then the card should be cancelled.

Payroll and employee compensation is also something that should be checked carefully. Payroll payments should be checked against employment agreements or offer letters. If Employees are getting paid more, then someone should ask if there were raises or some other valid explanation for the difference.

Many successful businesses can fail solely due to mismanagement of funds because the business is supporting the personal lifestyle of owners in a way that is not related to their salary or in a way to maximize business profitability.

This was the first time ever needing a lawyer for something, I was a bit frantic and overwhelmed with everything going on, but Nick and his team were very professional and honest, and made me feel at ease about my case. They were even professional and cool with the opposing attorney even though she was being unprofessional at times. In the end, they were able to settle my case and bring me a satisfying outcome. If you're ever in a bind and need a business lawyer, I highly recommend Nick and his team.

Mr Heimlich was very professional kind and knowledgeable when I give him a call. I was calling to hire an attorney for an tenant and landlord dispute. I had a particular issue that Mr Heimlich took time to completely listen to me. unfortunately the area I needed help was not an area that Mr Nick practiced. but he was not hesitant to give me some leads and direct me to the right place. he's a man of character and cares about what he does, I can only imagine his level of excellence in his area of expertise. he's a man of great character and I would recommend him for anyone to give him a call and talk to him. thank you very much Nick. thank you for caring .

I entered into a membership contract that had unreasonable cancellation requirements. I went to Nick through my company’s employee assistance program. Nick did thorough research and found that the contract term exceeded term limits allowed by California law. As a result, I was able to cancel the contract without any penalty. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

My family cannot thank Nick enough. We needed a business litigation attorney for a lawsuit that was going to trial, he not only took the time to understand the complexities of the case but was able to convey that to the judge. He was able to get us amazing results. Hands down the best attorney we have ever worked with.
