Unfair Business Practices
Unlawful & Immoral Business Conduct
There are numerous types of unfair business practices that can greatly impact your business and success. In order to prevent and remedy such behaviors, the state passed what is known as the Unfair Competition Act (California Business and Professions Code Section 17200-17210). This act describes the practices that are unlawful for business owners and large corporations to use, and if your company was impacted by another party's violation of the law, you can seek justice with the help of a skilled legal counselor. Violators of the act can face a number of civil penalties for any wrongful actions committed and the damages caused.
What business practices are unlawful?
These acts of misconduct can affect nearly any aspect of your business, from areas involving purchasing of goods, services rendered, advertising or pricing. If you feel your business has been put at risk or adversely affected by one of the following activities, you may be able to take legal action against the offending parties.
Unlawful business practices include, but are not limited to:
- False advertising
- Bank fraud
- Mortgage fraud
