There are laws in Louisiana and all other states that protect business owners and consumers from unfair practices. That said, unfair competition problems are not uncommon and, if left unresolved, often lead to personal financial loss and/or overall decline in profitability. Many people are unsure regarding their rights and wonder where to turn for support to seek justice in such matters.
Various types of incidents may be considered unfair competition. Generally speaking, any type of trademark infringement, misuse of trade secrets or defamatory statements regarding quality of business or products may be grounds for litigation. When economic injury is incurred due to unfair business practices, an injured party or parties may seek recovery for all losses in court.
Sometimes, those involved may resolve such matters without stepping foot in a courtroom. This is often made possible by acting alongside the guidance of an experienced business and commercial law attorney. However, a skilled attorney is always prepared to aggressively litigate on behalf of a client, if necessary, to obtain a fair and just solution to a business-related problem.
