  • The book examines how the law reacts to fraud by drawing on a variety of sources, including corporation, contract, tort, and trusts law.
  • covers the subject of human rights and how it affects business law.

For governments around the world, theft, deceit, bribery, rogue trade, and money laundering offer enormous and seemingly insurmountable issues. These kinds of activities might have social, economic, and political effects on a national and worldwide level. The effect of these efforts on private individuals is the main focus of this new book. The position of the victim, the fraudster, the recipients of property, and accessories are all examined in the text. The emphasis is on the civil law components of fraud and the growing importance of anti-money laundering and human rights laws.

Examining the extent to which fraud gives rise to unique regulations that are exceptions to the normal rules of civil law is the main focus of this book. The impact of theft and fraud on connected transactions is another matter that needs to be addressed. The protection of property rights is measured against the requirement to ensure the free flow of commodities and the security of a good faith transaction, and the necessity for legal certainty is assessed against the requirement to prevent fraud.
