Our attorneys are highly skilled in the defense of advertisers involved in significant actions brought by regulatory agencies at the state and federal levels, including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the United States Department of Justice and state attorneys general. We also regularly handle the defense of class action litigation as it relates to false advertising, and have extensive experience representing advertisers in state and federal court, and in proceedings before the NAD and the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), advertising industry self-regulatory programs.
We are strong advocates for our marketing and advertising clients and offer unparalleled understanding of the regulatory environment and the investigatory process, which enables us to efficiently and effectively resolve many matters without going to trial. In addition, we understand that advertising and marketing disputes can often raise issues that go well beyond the exposure of the lawsuit. These matters require attention to important subsidiary risks such as adverse publicity and follow-on actions. We know that protecting the brand is paramount and preserving the reputation of our clients’ products or services is critical to the success of every matter we handle.
