RPNA provides expertise in litigating cases arising under California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL), Business & Professions Code Sec. 17200. This statute addresses fraudulent, unfair and illegal business practices and false advertising. Unfair competition and antitrust law governs the broad spectrum of business and commercial practices.
All business activities are rife with opportunity for UCL and 17200 claims. Understanding how to effectively deal with, avoid, manage, settle or ultimately defend these claims is a true RPNA talent. The firm’s dynamic and veteran litigators have developed a keen sense of how competition functions across an assortment of industries, technologies, products and services. These skills were honed over decades of substantive law practice and immeasurable business experience.
Class and representative actions under Business & Professions Code Sec. 17200 remain prevalent in the current business environment. These actions often involve high stakes and large monetary damage awards. Because RPNA attorneys offer an abundance of trial and appellate experience in state and federal courts, the firm is regularly retained to avert and defend these claims. Our attorneys have represented clients on allegations of false advertising, fraud and antitrust violations, unfair and unlawful business practices, insurance bad faith, and wage and hour, discrimination and other employment matters.
