California's Unfair Competition Law (UCL) is defined under the Business and Professions Code, Section 17200. It prohibits businesses from engaging in any type of illegal or unfair business practice and false advertising. The UCL is intended to protect consumers and competing businesses against financial loss or other types of harm at the hands of unscrupulous business owners.
Under the law, businesses that violate the UCL can face substantial penalties for each unlawful act they commit. In addition, businesses and consumers who suffer losses as a result of these violations are entitled to seek restitution and possible civil damages. These are extremely complex legal matters, and it is essential that you have a qualified lawyer representing you from the outset.
