"[T]his text is an indispensable companion to the criminal counsel, Crown or defence, who wish to litigate these cases in a highly skilled and professional manner."
— Mark Sandler, LLB

Criminal fraud costs Canadians tens of billions of dollars per year. High profile cases—like those concerning Bernie Madoff, Enron, and Conrad Black—highlight how fraudulent activity can impact individuals, businesses, and society as a whole. Despite this growing problem, there are very few legal texts dedicated to effectively approaching and litigating these challenging cases. Prosecuting and Defending Fraud Cases: A Practitioner’s Handbook addresses this need by providing an in-depth understanding of the key principles, doctrines, and statutes surrounding these cases.

This practical guide examines how to handle allegations of fraud and related offences step by step. It comprehensively reviews the latest legislation and case law so that readers can familiarize themselves with the process and contextualize their own cases. Additionally, chapters in this text provide essential information on common issues surrounding documentary evidence and the admissibility of documents, breach of trust crimes, and Ponzi schemes. This information is paired with charts and checklists to assist practitioners with incorporating this knowledge into their practice.

By compiling comprehensive analysis and practical resources into one complete, concise volume, this text can act as the go-to resource for any Crown attorney, defence counsel, or judge who deals with fraud and parallel proceedings.
