If the negative outcome is shorter, I put it at the top.
if(checkIfSomethingIsWrongHere)
{
  return null; // or throw an exception, or whatever
}
else
{
  // long winded  processing
}

If the error routine is in the same method and rather long, put it second
if(haveWeSucceeded)
{
  // signal success to user, show dialog box, whatever
}
else
{
  // long winded error handling
}


Cheers,
Vıkram.
