Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act Claims

The Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act (LUTPA) offers a variety of protections to businesses and individual consumers who have been taken advantage of by a business.

Pursuing LUTPA Claims For Business Owners

In the business marketplace, an "all is fair in love and war" attitude is common. Some business owners have no problem acting unscrupulously to gain an advantage over their competitors. However, certain actions are prohibited under the Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act, such as lying to gain customer share.

Pursuing LUTPA Claims For Individual Consumers

For individuals who feel they have been victims of unfair trade practices, LUTPA offers recourse as well. If, for example, you were sold a good that was not fit for its intended purpose, I can help you bring a claim under LUTPA.

Damages available under LUTPA include:

  • Treble damages
  • Costs
  • Attorney's fees

Defense Against LUTPA Claims

In addition to pursuing LUTPA claims for individuals and businesses that have been harmed by unfair trade practices, I defend businesses against such claims. LUTPA claims can cause serious damage to a business even if the allegations are untrue. This makes it especially important that your business vigorously defend itself against LUTPA claims.
