At Martland & Saulnier, one of our primary focuses is the defence of fraud and other “white-collar” crimes. Our lawyers have experience defending allegations of Ponzi schemes, theft in the millions of dollars, ICBC fraud, Securities Act charges, stock market manipulations and other types of fraud-related charges.
Fraud and workplace theft and embezzlement cases are often complex, and may involve a significant paper or documentary record which defence counsel must master.
People charged with or investigated for fraud-type offences risk large fines, civil litigation, forfeiture and employment consequences. We take these possible consequences into account. When it is beneficial for clients, we work with civil litigators to ensure that clients have a cohesive strategy for defending all claims against them – whether criminal, civil or regulatory.
