We are pleased to announce the release of our latest Sound Business Insights Podcast Episode 16 – Unfair Competition with Dan Watkins. This episode provides an broad overview of a complex portion of the California business and commercial code: unfair competition. Unfair competition covers a large swath of issues from deceptive advertising and bait and switch tactics, to misappropriation of trade secrets and false representations, to intellectual property infringement and outright fraud. Dan Watkins discusses the issues and concerns relating to unfair competition and provides insight into resulting disputes and the defense of unfair competition lawsuits.
What legal remedies are available under California’s unfair competition laws? In Episode 16 – Unfair Competition Dan and Neil discuss the nature of the process of injunctions, temporary and permanent, and the Court’s role in preventing ongoing or future acts which are unlawful, unfair, deceptive or damaging to the existing goodwill of your company or business. The episode goes on to discuss the defense of allegations of unfair competition and how it is often included in any business related contract dispute.
The Watkins Firm carefully crafts Unfair competition clauses into every important business contract we draft. Unfair competition allegations open up the possibility of recovering attorneys fees which adds a lot of financial pressure to the situation. Why is this important? It is the leverage associated with the significant expense of potential damages and attorneys fees which enables the Watkins Firm to gain necessary attention and leverage in initial negotiations, as well as ongoing litigation, mediation and arbitration.
The Watkins Firm has decades of experience defending and pursuing unfair competition claims for our clients in San Diego and Southern California.
