False Advertising and Unfair Competition Defense
California has some of the most complex false advertising and unfair competition laws in the nation. We defend businesses who are accused of unfair advertising strategies, such as false “sale” allegations. In these cases plaintiffs may attempt to assert that the “compare at” price is consistently overstated or that the articles in question were never offered for sale at the original price listed on the price tag prior to markdown. We defend advertisers and businesses in almost every industry and market niche including clothing and retail stores, solar power sales and installation companies, as well as food, drug and cosmetics.
We defend business clients against consumer class action litigation under the California Business & Professions Code for unfair competition and false advertising as well as the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act. We also defend those who been accused of violating California or Federal “Organic or Made in the USA” labeling laws.
