False Advertising

When a company uses false statements, misleading labels, or other types of shady business practices, customers ultimately suffer the consequences. The good news is that California has some of the strongest consumer protection laws in the country, such as the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) and the Unfair Competition Law (UCL). These laws exist because people should not have to worry about losing their money to unethical companies. Common examples of false advertising include dishonest statements on retail products that intentionally mislead customers with inaccurate information or that omit important details about a product or service; deceptive labeling practices that misinform customers about ingredients on food products or nutritional supplements; product defects that result in injuries or health concerns for consumers; and hidden costs, subscription fees, or automatic renewals that are concealed in a bill or invoice.

The Newport Beach false advertising attorneys at Tauler Smith LLP are dedicated to helping victims of consumer fraud. We represent clients in both consumer class actions and individual lawsuits, and we can help you file a false advertising claim in state or federal court.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property can be a critical component of your competitive advantage, which is why it is so important to make sure that your most valuable IP assets are protected. The fact is that IP law can ensure that your business remains competitive and profitable in the future by protecting your exclusive rights to a product or service. If you ever sell your business, you may find that the intellectual property you own is one of the most valuable assets, particularly if it has helped to build goodwill with customers.

Our legal team advises clients in every aspect of intellectual property law, including copyright, trademark, trade secrets, and right of publicity. We can assist you with IP infringement claims, licensing agreements, and trade secret agreements. If you need help with copyright licensing, trademark licensing, or any other type of intellectual property transaction, the Newport Beach IP lawyers at Tauler Smith LLP can provide you with knowledgeable legal representation grounded in years of experience.
