Unfair Trade Practices

Unmasking Unfair Trade

The South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act (SCUTPA) creates liability for individuals and companies that employ unfair or deceptive business practices that harm an individual plaintiff, and that also have an adverse impact on the public interest. Claims for unfair trade practices may include allegations of false advertising, price fixing, deceptive marketing, or other conduct that unfairly influences consumer decisions or harms competitors. Because a successful plaintiff under the SCUTPA may recover treble damages, these claims can create more exposure for defendants and more leverage for plaintiffs than other claims typically asserted in business litigation disputes. Duffy & Young works diligently to represent clients who have been affected by unfair business practices or who have been accused of engaging in such practices. You can trust Duffy & Young to be your advocate in addressing unfair trade practices claims in South Carolina.
