Unfair Competition

"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back."
- Harvey McKay

False Advertising, unfair/deceptive trade practices and other conduct or claims that affect the success of a business

This growing area of business law prohibits a broad scope of deceptive, unfair and of course unlawful business practices and conduct.

While you may be sued under California’s Unfair Competition Law, you may also sue under this law to protect certain of your significant business investments.

Your company has invested time, money and energy creating products and services, developing client relationships, and confidential, proprietary and trade secret information that have helped you establish a competitive edge.

Can you afford to have these assets used against you by former employees?

SO&L understands not only the importance of protecting those investments, and also understands what steps to take when those investments have “left the building”!

Remember that valuable employees have valuable knowledge about your business, and other employees have valuable knowledge as well including access to customer and vendor data.

When employees with valuable information and knowledge move to another employer, if and when there is any indication of your company’s information or trade secrets being used against you and threatening the financial future of your company, contact SO&L without delay. We will evaluate the immediate situation and long term consequences, and if necessary initiate litigation to enforce restrictive covenants, non competition, non solicitation and confidentiality agreements; and act to protect your assets and future.

And, because we believe that a clear understanding of your legal problem and options are of the utmost importance, there is never a charge to evaluate your case. Speed in responding is essential in this complex area of business law, so help us help you by contacting SO&L today.

We invite you to call us at 818-461-8500 or you may prefer to use our Confidential Contact Form.
