Fraud is prevalent throughout society and is happening all of the time in different contexts. Those carrying out the fraud are often sophisticated, resulting in the fraud going undetected by reasonable, diligent but trusting individuals for long periods of time. Damages from fraud can be both substantial and, at the same time, hard to quantify.
The lawyers at Wood Litigation, APC have been litigating on all sides of fraud cases for twenty years in courts throughout California. Greg Wood started his career at a plaintiffs-side securities fraud litigation firm. Greg has prosecuted and defended against fraud claims in real estate, employment and professional liability contexts.
Greg has also, though, litigated claims of fraud on business owners and investors. In these cases, Greg has asserted or defended against claims that one person as duped another into giving up money and/or control of a lucrative business venture. Greg has had great success, in some instances winning millions of dollars for his client. Greg secured a multi-million-dollar settlement, for example, on behalf of founders of a tech company who were defrauded by its primary investor. Greg was also involved in securing a seven-figure judgment on behalf of a tenant who was defrauded into leasing commercial space that would never be suitable for her business.
