Unfair competition relates to conduct in the marketplace that may cause economic injury to commercial goodwill and damage to trade value and opportunities and can also involve trade names and trade dress.
Our clients can face unfair competition claims and trademark infringement allegations issues related to trademark dilution, infringement, misappropriation, passing off, false advertising, or commercial disparagement. All of these forms of deceptive trade practices can diminish the value of a commercial activity, product, service, or business by confusing consumers, diverting sales, tarnishing the reputations of goods, services, and commercial activities and can result in an economic loss as well as injury.
Our attorneys have litigated unfair competition claims in federal and state courts, both enforcing and defending against claims of unfair competition. They are familiar with the laws of unfair business competition and trademark law and regularly advise as to legal and business remedies available.
