What is Conversion?

Posted by Jonathan Krems | Jul 21, 2022 | 0 Comments

In this week's Freedom Friday blog and email newsletter, I'm going to answer a question often raised from my litigation clients, and that is “What is conversion?”  Frequently when I am asked to file a lawsuit based on fraud, it is important to sue on more than one cause of action.  For instance, if I file a breach of contract claim on behalf of a client, there are likely several other claims I will file as well in one lawsuit.  One of those causes of action that I might file, depending on the circumstances, is conversion.  When I discuss this with my client, they always ask what that is, and so in today's Freedom Friday blog and email newsletter, I'm answering the question, “What is conversion?”

Conversion is an action for civil theft, or civil stealing.  However, conversion is more than that, and there are different elements you have to prove in a successful case for conversion.  Conversion is a wrongful taking of someone else's property and converting it to your own use.  It is also depriving someone else of the use and enjoyment of their property without their consent.  Or it could be placing funds in someone else's control, and then those funds get misappropriated and converted to personal use instead of the use of the business they were intended for.  It can also be the wrongful withholding of possession of personal property, such as equipment, even a lawnmower can be converted.  In a nutshell, that's what conversion is in Oklahoma.
