When engaging in business transactions, parties cannot misrepresent the facts that are material to the transaction. Making untrue statements may constitute fraud and give rise to a business lawsuit.

Fraudulent Misrepresentation

Lying in and of itself is not unlawful. However, when a lie amounts to fraudulent misrepresentation, it constitutes an actionable tort. A number of factors must be present for an action or statement to constitute fraudulent misrepresentation. For instance:

  • A party must make an untrue statement, or misrepresentation.
  • The misrepresentation must be material to the transaction and made with knowledge that it is false.
  • The misrepresentation must have induced the other party to enter into the transaction.
  • The misrepresentation must cause harm to the other party.

Every case is unique. We will scrutinize the facts of your case to determine if misrepresentation occurred and if so, help you explore your legal options. Our law firm is entirely focused on litigation. Our lawyers have the skill and experience to protect your rights in a misrepresentation lawsuit.
