Consumer Litigation


Consumer rights are protected by various consumer fraud acts and state unfair and deceptive practice statutes.  In particular, the Unfair Competition Law (Business and Professions Code § 17200), the False Advertising Act (Business and Professions Code § 17500), and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (Civil Code §§ 1750-1784), are laws enacted in California to provide protection to consumers.  These laws can be used to take action against, among other things, false and deceptive advertising; unfair, unlawful or fraudulent business practices; privacy violations and product liability.
