At Thomas Trial & Business Solutions, PLLC, we advise business clients who wish to bring unfair competition claims as well as others defending themselves against such claims.

What Is Unfair Competition?

Legal explanations of unfair competition based on the Federal Trade Commission Act include the following business torts or wrongdoings. These activities may cause financial harm to affected businesses. Both plaintiffs and defendants in such cases often realize that the stakes are high and they need legal counsel.

  • Passing off or reverse passing off — misrepresenting products as if they were made by someone other than the true manufacturer. Deception is the key, even if the defendant in an unfair competition case did not intend to commit fraud.
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets to use in commerce
  • Common law misappropriation by which a plaintiff allegedly gains an unfair commercial advantage by marketing someone else’s products as if they were their own

Our attorneys help parties in potential unfair compensation cases to discover and document reasons to support their positions. Our litigation team is determined and meticulous when gathering evidence and preparing persuasive statements.

What To Do If Your Texas Business Is Caught Up In An Unfair Competition Claim

In the world of business, the consequences of unfair competition can be enormous. Circumstances that may seem minor can alter a business’s prospects significantly for a very long time.
