Consumer markets have to abide by the rules and regulations of this directive. Consumer fraud also harms the marketplace by allowing deceitful businesses to gain an unfair advantage over ethical competitors. Thankfully, our skilled consumer fraud attorneys fight for the victims of unfair business practices. Through a consumer fraud lawsuit, companies that use illegal practices to profit at the expense of the consumer will be held accountable and removed from competition with businesses that use fair and legal methods.
