Consumer False Advertising & Unfair Competition
With the rise of competition in the food, beverage, cosmetics, drugs, and device spaces, companies in these industries are increasingly subject to claims of deceptive advertising about health benefits. Many times the claims require a scientific expertise that can analyze the justification for the claim. We help clients substantiate claims, where possible.
