Our attorneys have advised businesses on all aspects of advertising law. We counsel businesses on how to avoid and respond to investigations by federal and state government agencies for alleged false advertising, unfair sales, and marketing practices. We litigate false advertising and unfair competition claims between competitors in court and we litigate false advertising consumer class actions for business.
We have advised on FTC compliance, including COPPA and GLB, mobile marketing, prepaid and stored value cards and promotions, sweepstakes and contests, as well as the right of publicity and social media issues.
From reviewing advertising for compliance purposes to advising companies on compliance implications of particular product launches to handling disputes with consumers or regulatory agencies, including the DMV and the FTC, arising from advertising, promotions and sweepstakes, the firm knows how to provide effective legal assistance to clients in this area.
