Represented largest convenience store chain, in which client discovered $4.9 million was overpaid to a franchisees over the course of 14 months and feared monies and defendants fled the US. Client requested YLG recover the monies (including taken over as “lead counsel” from an AM Law 100 firm mid-case), locate and confront franchisees, file a civil suit, and peruse criminal charges. YLG quickly developed a three-prong strategy and deployed an integrated financial fraud, legal, and physical investigation team. YLG located thieves, tracked down and froze assets, interviewed witnesses, and provided support for criminal, civil, and insurance matters. YLG strategy resulted in recovery of stolen monies, civil judgment, and the bad guys sentenced to 10 years in prison.
