Unfair Trade Practices

Texas Attorneys Combat Unfair Trade Practices

Skilled lawyers protect consumers in the Plano area

Unfair or deceptive trade practices harm consumers and rob competing businesses. If you’ve been victimized by a devious merchant, marketer or manufacturer, the law provides remedies. McCauley Westberg PLLC represents consumers and businesses in the Plano area and throughout Texas who’ve been taken advantage of or infringed upon by unscrupulous individuals and business entities. We provide the advice and advocacy our clients deserve when they’ve been harmed by unfair trade practices.

Proven advocates stand up for consumers

One foundation of our free market is trust. Consumers must have confidence that what they purchase is what they were promised. We stand up for consumers by taking legal action against fraudulent practices such as:

  • “Bait and switch” selling tactics
  • Breaches of warranty
  • Deceptive pricing practices
  • False or deceptive advertising
  • False claims of sponsorship, approval or affiliation
  • Fraudulent offers of gifts or prizes
  • Pyramid schemes
  • Sales of substandard goods

We draw on extensive experience fighting for consumers’ rights in Texas and will hold businesses accountable when they engage in unfair or deceptive practices that harm consumers.

Knowledgeable advisers safeguard honest businesses

The dishonest practices listed above not only harm consumers but also poison the market for ethical businesses that provide valuable goods and services at fair prices. We protect reputable businesses against deceitful acts that target consumers, as well as unfair practices aimed directly at competitors, including:

  • Breaches of restrictive covenants
  • Infringement of copyrights and patents
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Threats, intimidation or bribery
  • Tortious interference
  • Trade defamation/libel
  • Trade name or trademark infringement
  • Misappropriation of a name or likeness
  • Undue influence

If another business’s bad practices are affecting your company’s ability to thrive, we will represent your interests by holding them accountable.

Trusted litigators seek available remedies

Trade practices are regulated by federal and state law. If an unfair trade practice can be proven, your remedies may include:

  • Actual damages — Monetary losses you can prove
  • Statutory damages — Minimum amounts provided by law regardless of proof of actual damages
  • Treble damages — Tripled damage awards to further discourage unfair trade
  • Punitive damages — Additional monetary awards meant to punish the defendant for his dishonesty
  • Court injunctions — Court orders that compel the defendant to stop the unfair practice

Depending on the facts, we will press your case through negotiations or in court to obtain the damages or injunctive relief you deserve.
