If you are facing a lawsuit based upon RICO violations, you need a qualified Commercial Litigation Attorney team to defend you in and out of court. The penalties involved in RICO cases are substantial, and the law heavily favors the plaintiff in such cases. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act authorizes three times the damages to be awarded for any successful private lawsuit. The “triple damages” provision was justified by the expected advantage of suppressing racketeering activity. Depending on the particular violation you are charged with, it can cost your company millions of dollars.
Civil RICO statutes regulate the way companies do business, and how they compete with other companies according to Federal Law. Civil RICO statute 18 U.S.C. 1964 not only provides criminal penalties for racketeering charges, but civil remedies as well. The most common forms of RICO violations are mail fraud, extortion, obstruction of justice, obstruction of a criminal investigation, and witness tampering or retaliation. Congress designed Civil RICO laws to be “liberally” construed, meaning that there is a greater burden on the defense than on the prosecution or plaintiff. As such, any company or individual must have a top-notch commercial litigation team handling their case.
