If a competitor has accused you of violating federal unfair competition law or you believe that a competitor has an unfair competitive advantage, a lawyer can help you assess the situation. Your lawyer will need information about the nature and status of your complaint. Federal unfair competition law encompasses false advertising, “passing off” goods as the goods of a competitor, trade libel, and tortious interference. If you’re not sure whether the claim at issue actually bestows unfair competitive advantage, a lawyer can help you discern which category of federal unfair competition law your situation falls into and how you can move forward.
