The Law Of Unfair Trade Practices


“The ACC” stands for more than a sports league. It’s also the Association of Corporate Counsel. In February of this year, I gave a talk to the RTP Chapter of the organization on the law of unfair trade practices.

The talk is nationwide in scope, but it includes plenty of North Carolina examples. In the talk, I lay out the general shape of the law on unfair trade practices, including some infamous recent cases from California and New Jersey.

See especially slides 6-14, where I describe how section 75-1.1 fits into the range of similar statutes nationwide.

Please see full presentation below for more information.
