Phoenix Corporate Fraud Defense Lawyer
A corporate entity is a shield that can be used for legal and illegal purposes. If you have been charged with corporate fraud, the government will allege that you used a corporate entity as a shield to conceal illegal activities and protect yourself from liability. It is the job of your defense lawyer to make sure that the government, which is not a benign organization, does not trample on your rights.
At the law firm of Blumberg & Associates in Phoenix, Arizona, we have represented everyone from small limited liability corporations to large enterprises involving multiple corporate shells. Examples of criminal activities the government may allege against corporate officers include:
- Misuse of corporate credit
- Money laundering through a corporate entity such as an LLC, S-corporation, C-corporation or other business organization
- Engaging in fraud through a corporate entity
- Making illegal financial disclosures or misrepresentations
- Obtaining fraudulent loans or financing
As with other criminal charges, being charged with corporate fraud does not mean that you are guilty. One defense in these cases is to assert that you used the corporate shield legally under Arizona state law. Prosecutors must prove that you knew or should have known that the activity was fraudulent.
