False Advertising and Consumer Fraud Claims in Dallas, TX
The Dallas false advertising lawyers at Tauler Smith LLP are very familiar with the strong consumer protection laws in Texas, many of which explicitly prohibit businesses from taking advantage of customers by committing fraud or using false advertising. The most important consumer protection law that applies to companies doing business in the state is the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA), which provides consumers with a right of action and the ability to sue a business that commits deceptive, misleading, or otherwise illegal practices. Another Texas state law applies to a specific kind of consumer fraud: deceptive sales calls. This statute, known as the Texas Telephone Solicitation Act, sets forth guidelines that companies must follow when soliciting customers on the phone or via email. If you were harmed financially or otherwise by a company’s false advertising practices in Dallas, the Tauler Smith legal team can help you.
Intellectual Property Litigation in Dallas, Texas
Businesses and individuals need to be diligent about protecting their intellectual property rights because these are often a company’s most valuable assets. Some of the most common types of intellectual property lawsuits that get filed in Dallas courts include:
- Copyright Infringement
- Trademark Infringement
- Trade Secret Misappropriation
- Right of Publicity Misappropriation
Copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and rights of publicity can serve as a direct source of revenues for many companies. Additionally, intellectual property can help a business establish goodwill with customers who come to rely on and trust a particular brand. The Dallas intellectual property lawyers at Tauler Smith LLP represent plaintiffs who need to take immediate action to enforce their IP rights. We also represent defendants who need to respond to frivolous claims alleging intellectual property theft or misappropriation.
