What Kinds Of Business Practices Are Unfair?

When considering an unfair competition claim, it is important to begin with being aware of your rights under both federal and state law. At the federal level, for example, there are various consumer protection laws that regulate deceptive or unfair commercial practices. In Illinois, there is also extensive state legislation against unfair trade practices.

Our firm is confident in handling all types of cases under these laws. This includes:

  • Tortious interference with business contracts
  • Noncompete agreements
  • False advertising

We can also guide you forward in asserting your legal rights under lesser known aspects of unfair competition law, such as commercial disparagement or commercial bribery. Our FAQ on unfair competition contains more details about these issues.

Asserting Your Rights

The situation you face could be one of obvious misconduct, such as information theft or misappropriation of proprietary data. You may instead be facing a gray area, such as whether the restrictions sought by a covenant not to compete are reasonable in scope.

No matter what your issue is, we encourage you to make sure you have a skilled lawyer on your side. To arrange a confidential consultation, call 847-915-4475 or complete our online form.
