Introduction to Unfair Competition

PlaceholderIn commercial law, Unfair Competition refers to the legal protection from acts by a competitor or group of competitors that could harm another business in the field and result in civil litigation. If you suspect that a competitor is engaging in any unfair or unethical activity that could harm your company, consulting an attorney can help you clarify whether you could take further steps toward litigation in order to protect your business.

Possible issues that could instigate an investigation and case for unfair competition include:

  • Legal Anti-trust violations such as predatory pricing and other methods of forcing competition out of the market
  • Trademark Infringement
  • Trade Libel, or the spreading of false information about a competing product
  • Fraud and Misrepresentation
  • Unconscionable contracts that give any competitor an unfair advantage over another
