California Unfair Competition Law (UCL)

Posted By Mehrshad Mirkhan || 3-Mar-2015

Competition is a normal part of running a business; however, there is such a thing as “unfair competition.” When another business crosses the legal line in an attempt to get ahead of your business, you have every right to take legal action against them.

California’s “unfair competition law” (UCL) is found in California Business and Professions Code § 17200 et. seq. In general, there are three parts to this statute: unfair, unlawful, and fraudulent. When a business partakes in any act that is one or more of these three things, then that business can be held accountable under California UCL.

Proving unfair competition, however, is no simple task. As a business owner who believes that another business is trying to take advantage of your business using illegal measures, you should approach a Los Angeles business litigation attorney right away regarding the issue. You need the trained eye and expert opinion of a seasoned attorney who not only knows how to recognize evidence of unfair competition, but also knows how to preserve that evidence and use it in a court of law.
