At Herrig & Vogt, LLP, we know that the rise of the American economy to one of the largest and most powerful in the world is attributable in no small measure to the fact that it is a free market economy. Even a free market, however, requires a certain amount of regulation to ensure that the playing field is kept level so that anyone can succeed. California specifically prohibits certain actions that constitute unfair business practices, since these actions would tend to prejudice the opportunities of a competitor. Our Roseville business attorneys want to help fight unfair practices and help give your business the fair chance it deserves.
One business cannot succeed by cheating another out of customers, stealing proprietary technology or products, infringing on trademarks and similar practices. California Business and Professions Code §17200 defines unfair competition as "any unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising." This statute covers a wide range of different types of unfair business practices, including, but not limited to:
Any one of the above types of practices can make it difficult or impossible for you to expand your business, or even to keep the doors open. If you have been a victim of unfair business practices on the part of a competitor, you do not have to give up without a fight. You can hire an aggressive Roseville business lawyer to fight for your rights and to pursue an outcome in your favor.
The trial attorneys of Herrig & Vogt, LLP have a reputation for being hard-hitting litigators who are willing to fight for our clients, and we are ready to take immediate action on your case. With our help, you may be able to receive injunctive relief in a court order that will prohibit your competitor from continuing to engage in unfair practices. Putting an end to the unfair competition, however, is not the only type of relief that you can seek from the court.
You may receive an order to pay restitution for the purpose of compensating you for the losses you have sustained and to return you as nearly as possible to the status quo ante. Finally, you may be awarded civil penalties in the form of a fine paid by the defendant. Our business lawyers take on cases in Roseville and throughout Placer County, Sacramento County and El Dorado County, and we urge you to take the first step in your case now.
