Unfair Competition Prevention
The Unfair Competition Prevention Act prohibits the unauthorized use of well-known and prominent product and other indications, protects trade secrets and business reputation, and the like, and is therefore extremely important for the conduct of business. In regard to acts of unfair competition, our firm has built a strong track record in regard to trade secrets by providing practical advice in regard to the measures necessary to receive protection under the Unfair Competition Prevention Act, providing advice related to appropriate measures when trade secrets are infringed, providing advice for training employees in the importance of trade secrets, and handling litigation related to the infringement of trade secrets. We are also active in contributing articles and conducting seminars in the trade secrets field.
In addition, we have experience providing advice and handling litigation in regard to the unauthorized use of well-known or prominent product and other indications, as well as trade dress infringement. Specifically, we served as plaintiff’s attorneys in a case where the court handed down the groundbreaking ruling that store exteriors constitute protectable indications (case of petition for provisional disposition seeking injunction under the Unfair Competition Prevention Act).
