Unfair Business Practices

Latham & Watkins has handled a wide range of actions involving various US federal and state false advertising, unfair competition, unfair business practices and consumer protection claims.

Several of these claims have been filed under the Lanham Act, California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act and California's controversial Unfair Competition Act, Business & Professions Code § 17200, and have included class actions, attorney general and district attorney prosecutions, and representative claims brought by private attorneys general.

Because of the breadth of § 17200, Latham has been called upon to confront the Unfair Competition Act in connection with a variety of substantive legal areas, from environmental, healthcare, employment and labor, and securities to products liability and food labeling.
