Civil RICO Claims in California

fraud.jpgFor most people, the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) Act is associated with organized crime. This is not surprising since the control of crime was the original purpose of the statute. However, civil action may also be brought under the RICO act. Further, in California, civil RICO claims are increasingly being brought not just against organized crime, but against clearly legitimate businesses. If you are considering bringing a civil RICO claim, or if a RICO claim has been brought against your California business, you need to consult with an experienced San Jose business litigation attorney as soon as possible.

Involuntary Business Dissolutions in California

Involuntary Business Dissolutions.jpgA business may find itself facing a major internal strife. In some cases, controlling directors may be deadlocked, or involved in another seemingly irresolvable dispute. Eventually, these internal issues will cause tremendous damage to the value of the company. At this point, shareholders may need to take action in order to protect their interests. Forcing an involuntary business dissolution is sometimes the only way for a shareholder to protect their rights. If you are a shareholder in a company facing an internal dispute, and you believe that involuntary dissolution may be necessary, you need to contact an experienced San Jose business dissolution attorney as soon as possible.

These situations arise frequently because sellers of businesses either actively misrepresent the facts surrounding the business or fail to disclose all the proper information to the prospective buyer.

Identifying and Avoiding Real Estate Fraud

california-real-estate-fraud.jpgFour years ago, Forbes identified California as the third highest state for mortgage fraud following Florida and New York to round out the top three. Last year, over 100 cases of real estate fraud resulted in convictions and over 200 convictions were reported the year previous to that. This type of investigation involves several parts and people who may be unaware they are part of a scam. According to the American Bar Association, the most targeted groups of people for real estate fraud include:

  • Santa Clara County Bar Association | 1917
  • American Inns of Court
  • CWL | California Woman Lawyers
  • Bay Area Bankruptcy | Forun
  • The State Bar of California
