    With increasing frequency, professionals and their firms are facing some variant of a nightmarish scenario that, if not handled correctly, threatens the professionals’ livelihood and the firms’ very existence. The classic fact pattern is this: A significant client of the firm, apparently a prosperous business offering valuable products or services, collapses overnight. The client, it turns out, was much less than it appeared. All or much of the client’s business was a fiction. The clients’ executives cleverly concealed this state of affairs from the world for years.

    Maybe there was no real business at all, as in the case of a pure “Ponzi scheme.” Or, perhaps the client had a real business, but a far less successful business than its managers had represented. In either event, the goal of such schemes typically is to deceive those who invest, lend or do business with the company, so that the fraudsters may obtain cash – whether to line their own pockets, or to live high on the hog for as long as the scheme lasts, or to prop up their failing company in an effort to save it.

    This book touches on many areas of law practice and of substantive law. This book brings together these many areas into a primer on client fraud cases against professionals, in the hope that it may assist professionals faced with such claims, and the professionals’ lawyers, to identify available defenses and strategies.
