Unfair competition accusations often arise from allegations from jealous competitors, angry customers or ex employees with an ax to grind making claims of false advertising, theft of intellectual property, trademark infringement, and theft of trade secrets.

Historically, State and federal government stayed out of the relationship between businesses and their consumers. The rule of the day was “Caveat Emptor” or “Let the Buyer Beware”. For whatever reason, whether it be rampant unscrupulous business practices, or just plain politics, the government is now fully involved in consumer protection. Almost every State Attorney General has a consumer protection division, and now the Federal Government through the Federal Trade Commission has its own Bureau of Consumer Protection to “protect consumers against unfair, deceptive, or fraudulent practices.” The problem the attorney’s at Boles Holmes White have seen, is “Who determines what is unfair or deceptive?” Our clients have received letters to cease and desist certain conduct by various consumer protection offices before they even have a jury trial.

Your responses to these communications will often determine which direction the investigation goes. Call the attorneys at Boles Holmes White today to help you respond.
