Unfair Competition

Unfair Competition

When businesses engage in unfair competition, it can have a significant impact on the marketplace and the economy as a whole.  Unfair competition law is designed to protect businesses and consumers from practices that are considered to be unfair or deceptive.

Unfair competition laws in California include the Unfair Competition Law (Bus. & Prof. Code § 17200, et seq.), the False Advertising Law (Bus. & Prof. Code § 17500, et seq.) and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Civ. Code § 1750, et seq.)  California’s unfair competition laws are among the broadest in the county and prohibit a wide range of conduct but also include important limitations.  Businesses that engage in unfair competition can be subject to injunctions, civil penalties, restitution, and damages.  In some cases, the government may also bring criminal charges.

If you or your business is involved in an unfair competition lawsuit, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and get you the best possible result.  MSD’s attorneys have experience representing clients on both sides of such disputes, including Fortune 500 companies, as well as individuals and businesses impacted by unfair competition.  Contact MSD today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced litigators.
