This entry was posted in Business Disputes on .

Under California law, consumers enjoy sweeping protections against unfair business practices. In our state, victims of unfair business practices can file suit to seek damages including:

  • Money paid for goods or services
  • Losses related to money paid for said goods or services
  • Any costs incurred due to the unfair business practice
  • Attorney and related legal fees

Consumers must make a demand in writing before filing an unfair business practices lawsuit in California. The attorneys at Kirtland & Packard can help you with the draft of this letter and all subsequent actions based on the company’s response.

What is an Unfair Business Practice

  • Deceptive or misleading advertisements

  • Fraudulent or unlawful actions
  • Failure to disclose information
  • Violations of local, regional, or federal laws
