We specialize in addressing legal issues surrounding conversion, a critical and often misunderstood area of tort law. Conversion involves the unauthorized taking or use of someone else’s property, depriving the rightful owner of its use and enjoyment. Our dedicated legal team is equipped to provide comprehensive guidance and representation to individuals and businesses affected by conversion.

What Is Conversion?

Conversion is an intentional tort that occurs when an individual wrongfully takes possession or control of personal property belonging to someone else, thereby denying the rightful owner access to or use of their property. It’s not limited to outright theft; conversion can involve any unauthorized act that deprives the owner of their rights, even if the property is not damaged or permanently taken.

Examples of Conversion

  • Unauthorized selling, using, or disposing of someone else’s property
  • Refusing to return property that was loaned or rented
  • Misappropriating funds or assets for personal use
  • Withholding property that should rightfully be returned or transferred

Legal Remedies for Conversion

Victims of conversion have the right to seek legal remedies to recover their property or receive compensation for their loss. These remedies typically include:

  • Damages: Monetary compensation for the value of the converted property at the time of conversion, along with any additional losses suffered by the owner.
  • Replevin: A legal action that allows the owner to recover the actual property, not just its value, from the person who has wrongfully taken it.
  • Injunctive Relief: In some cases, a court may issue an order to prevent further misuse or disposition of the property.
