The attorneys at Heekin Law are experienced and knowledgeable in many types of business disputes and represent both plaintiffs and defendants. A common cause of action raised in business litigation is a violation of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, which is typically referred to as “FDUTPA”.
As a commercial and business law attorney law firm, we know that great ideas and efficient marketing strategies may make a business stand out, but what really allows a business to rise above its competition and thrive is the effective handling of its day-to-day business law issues it may face. From entity selection, contract formation to dispute resolution for all parties concerned, having an available and proven, cost-effective legal resource is essential in today’s business environment.
FDUTPA is intended to protect consumers from anyone who engages in unfair methods of competition or deceptive practice in any trade or commerce. A FDUTPA claim is commonly raised by consumers against businesses or by one business against another business. FDUTPA claims can be very complex and the statute and case law set forth the elements necessary to prove a cause of action under FDUTPA and the potential remedies for a FDUTPA violation, including the issuance of an injunction and/or damages. FDUTPA claims are also commonly brought because the statute provides a successful litigant with the right to recover attorneys’ fees.
As with most causes of action, there is a strict time limit for bringing a cause of action under FDUTPA. Specifically, the statute of limitation for bringing a FDUTPA claim is four (4) years from the date of the event giving rise to the FDUTPA claim. Therefore, if you believe that there has been a violation of FDUTPA, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
