Santa Ana Business Contract Dispute Lawyer
In California, a general rule of law is that an individual cannot sue for fraud, when the central basis of the claim is that the person or entity did not perform his obligations under a contract. In such cases, only the smaller amount of damages available in a claim for breach of contract can be sought. However, one of the exceptions to this rule is known as "fraud in the inducement of a contract," or "fraud in the inception of a contract." This is where a person induces another to enter into a verbal or written contract on a fraudulent basis.

If you have been victim of such fraud, you may be entitled to not only monetary compensation you for your losses, but additional punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and set an example of the person. In the alternative, if you have been accused of fraud in this context, you may face exposure for liability to extensive damages, and loss of your business reputation.

  • Were a person induces another to enter into a contract with no intention to fully perform the contact
  • Where a person induces another to enter into a contract by misrepresenting facts

If you were approached to form a new business, invested money and later found out that little or none of your money was used to form the business, you are probably the victim of fraud. If a person caused you to invest in their business based upon false representations about the business, you are the victim of fraud. If another business induced you to enter into a contract with it to obtain your money or trade secrets with no intention to perform their obligations under the contract, you are the victim of fraud.
