Litigation over deceptive trade practices

Litigation affecting businesses arises for many reasons, but some cases can be particularly complex to work through, such as those which involve deceptive trade practices. If you are a business owner and your company has been accused of deceptive trade practices, you may have no idea where to turn. However, there is much at stake and the outcome of the case could have a major impact on your California business’ future. From issues related to advertising to allegations that second-hand products were being sold as if they were new, there are many reasons why these accusations surface and it is essential to be prepared.

A business may be accused of deceptive trade practices for many reasons. On the one hand, a business owner may have unknowingly misled the public or carried out a deceptive trade practice due to inexperience or a lack of familiarity with the law. On the other hand, a business could be falsely accused of deceptive trade practices by one of their competitors or a person who holds a grudge against the company.

It is essential to bear in mind that the outcome of a lawsuit involving deceptive trade practice allegations can have a negative impact on a company extending far beyond financial penalties. In fact, reputations can be irreversibly damaged and key relationships may be lost due to the case as well.

We understand the different pressures you may be facing as a business owner and know how important it is for you to focus on managing the company rather than the rules and regulations imposed by law. Thus, it’s important to have a qualified attorney on your team to help you defend against allegations of deceptive trade practices.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.


I think Tommy and his team by far considered the best people to work with in my 16 business years. Beside quick responses to all my inquiries, they also done things right and providing very professional solutions. I’m highly recommending Tommy and his firm to all business owners.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment.

After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions.
