Theft

Our firm works to successfully restore lost money as well as reputation

When an employee steals from an employer, it is an act that goes beyond a betrayal of trust and a loss of material value. It raises concerns that the company lacks appropriate safeguards and that lenders and other stakeholders are exposed to worrisome risk.

Add to this a greater degree of scrutiny that exists throughout business since the institution in 2002 of the Sarbanes Oxley Act. While directed at publicly held companies, SOX has also placed greater responsibilities on directors and executives at closely held companies to address any form of theft to the enterprise.

Retaining experienced legal counsel under such circumstances – whether it involves embezzlement, extortion or a theft of trade secrets – should be the first line of defense.

Attorney Abraham Mathew works with companies of all sizes facing acts of theft, providing expert counsel as needed to retrieve all that was taken. Just as important, by investigating and examining the hard facts of the situation, Mathew advises clients on means to achieve the best outcome for the business overall – which includes satisfying rules of compliance as well as a restoration of financial and reputational assets.
