Businesses are bound by commercial law to compete fairly and operate in
a just manner. When they fail to do so, duplicitous businesses may gain
the upper hand through deception, fraud, or other types of unfair practices.
This type of unfair competition can harm your business and jeopardize
your future. If you have been the victim of unfair competition practices,
the business litigation lawyers at Kelley/Uustal can help.
In commercial law, unfair competition can involve a number of deceptive
or fraudulent practices that are designed to create customer confusion
and harm competing businesses. Examples of unfair competition include:
Unfair competition claims can be brought against former employees who have
gone into business using similar logos or trademarks. They can be brought
against business competitors who run false advertising promotions to increase
profits. And they can be brought against former business associates who
have stolen valuable trade secrets and provided them to a competitor.
Both state common laws and federal laws protect businesses against unfair
competition practices and allow affected businesses to seek compensation.
The Lanham Act is one such act that protects businesses and their trademarks.
If your business has been hurt by unfair competition practices, it is important
to retain the services of an experienced business dispute lawyer immediately.
At Kelley/Uustal, our attorneys recognize how damaging unfair competition
can be to businesses and their bottom line. When a business deliberately
engages in deceptive marketing, they must be held accountable for their
actions and for the damages they have caused.
