This paper discusses how fraudulent misrepresentation, also known as fraud or deceit, is a tort based on liability for material misrepresentations, upon which a party justifiably relies, which lead to a contract or other legal relationship. It points out that the reasonable reliance clause makes the tort of fraudulent misrepresentation an acceptable part of ethics law and how the ethical ramifications of the extension of liability are enormous. It also relates that the very complexity of most mergers and acquisitions, combined with the sheer number of interested parties, makes it unlikely that a merger or acquisition can be completed without dealing with conflicts of interest or other ethical considerations.
