Unfair Competition Litigation

Businesses often face competitors who engage in a variety of unfair conduct, including the improper use of trade secrets and other proprietary information that otherwise create unfair confusion in the marketplace. These cases are usually brought under the federal Lanham Act. We represent businesses victimized by such conduct as well as those who are unfairly accused of unlawful competitive activities. We have represented clients who sought protection from the courts, including obtaining injunctive relief to prevent ongoing unfair conduct. We have also defended individual clients who have been unfairly accused of violating their fiduciary duties to former employers and engaging in unfair competition. This litigation requires counsel to obtain a comprehensive understanding of our client’s business and the competitive environment.
