The Florida Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is
also known as Florida’s racketeering law, and it was enacted to
eradicate organized crime. Essentially, this law made it illegal for organizations
to engage in a pattern of criminal activity or unlawful fraudulent behavior.
Like the federal RICO Act, this Act encompasses a wide range of criminal
activity, from embezzlement to securities fraud. If an organization or
company has an established pattern of fraud, they may be found guilty
of racketeering under either Florida or federal law.
Commercial litigation has allowed for businesses and companies to turn to civil RICO to recover
damages related to fraud or unfair trade practices. Victims can be entitled
to recover up to 3x the amount of damages this way, including attorneys’
fees in civil court. Through civil RICO claims, a plaintiff can allege
a pattern of fraudulent or criminal activity and hold large duplicitous
corporations accountable for their actions.
RICO litigation lawsuits are particularly complex because they involve
a broad range of fraudulent conduct that often has been occurring over
years. This activity also usually involves numerous individuals, as well
as countless documents. As such, you need a law firm with the experience
and resources to go after large corporations and build a case that is
designed to expose the corruption that has been perpetrated.
