Unfair Competition Law

ARI LAW’s consumer and unfair competition law practice is two-fold: (1) to understand, protect and maximize the rights and interests of honest consumers that have been deceived or injured by unfair or fraudulent business practices in the marketplace, and (2) to counsel clients regarding the proper way to protect consumer rights and best practices.

The Firm’s attorneys have experience in handling cases involving fraud and unfair consumer practices, including the prosecution, litigation, and defense of claims under California’s unfair competition laws, such as California Business and Professions Code Section 17200, (also known as the “Unfair Competition Law” or “UCL”) and Section 17500 (also known as the “False Advertising Law” or “FAL”).
