Civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO)

Wilson & Wilson Co., L.P.A. and its attorneys are one of relatively few law firms who have litigated multiple civil RICO claims on behalf of plaintiffs. Federal Civil RICO is a powerful statutory claim with mandatory triple actual damages. RICO claims are inherently complex with predicate acts including wire fraud, mail fraud, money laundering, theft and the transportation of stolen goods, and other criminal acts. Civil RICO complaints require extensive pleading preparation with diligent fact-finding prior to filing. Without the proper lawyers, civil RICO claims can easily be pled improperly, which could lead to amendment, dismissal, or foreclosure of the claim. As plaintiff’s counsel, Wilson & Wilson Co., L.P.A. achieved a judgment in Federal Court of millions for industrial espionage, including claims for violations of the Federal and State RICO acts, conspiracy, misappropriation of trade secrets, fraud, conversion, computer theft and breach of contract.*
