Fraudulent Business Practices Lawyer

When a business uses fraud, misrepresentation, false advertising and other unfair business practices for gain, it can be to the detriment of consumers and other businesses. Fraudulent business practices can be stopped through an injunction brought by another business or consumers. The accused business can also be subject to legal actions to pay restitution to those harmed by their fraudulent business practices.

Georgia’s Fair Business Practices Act outlines fraudulent business practices and what activities are unlawful in the marketplace. Some activities covered under this law include:

  • Misrepresenting the maker of a product
  • False claims on where a product is made or produced
  • Passing used items off as new
  • Making false accusations or claims about another business
  • False claims about the quality or features of a product
  • Misleading advertising – bait and switch methods or false statements about pricing

In addition to general unfair business practices, the Fair Business Practices Act covers industry-specific and situational issues, such as price gouging, telemarketing fraud and promotional contests. The unfair business practices covered under the law are specifically designed to protect consumers. Only consumers can pursue complaints under this law, not competitors. There are other statutes that govern deceptive trade and unfair competition tactics in Georgia if a business has been financially harmed by the fraudulent business practices of one of their competitors.

Seeking Restitution for Unfair Business Practices

When a business uses unfair business practices for gain, consumers and competing businesses can suffer the consequences. Seeking an injunction to put an end to the practices can stop further damage, but it does not undo financial damage that was already incurred. For consumers, this can often lead to a class action lawsuit against a company. For business competitors, pursuing a claim under deceptive trade or unfair competition laws can be used to receive restitution for financial damages.

Fraudulent business practices harm a free and competitive marketplace and can do direct financial harm to consumers and other businesses.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
