Class action lawsuits against advertisers and marketers are on the rise, and they pose significant threats to their brands and their businesses. Successfully defending these cases requires mastery of the issues and complexities that are unique to class action litigation, as well as the procedural nuances of courts and jurisdictions around the country.
Venable is widely recognized as one of the nation's most highly regarded advertising and marketing law practices. We defend clients against class action claims alleging violation of state and federal deceptive trade practices, false advertising, unfair competition, and other consumer protection statutes. Our experience includes achieving precedent-setting U.S. Supreme Court victories, acting in relation to federal appellate decisions, and defending against class actions in state and federal courts.
In addition, we frequently defend clients against false advertising claims before self-regulatory bodies such as the National Advertising Division (NAD). Venable's experience handling consumer class actions and Lanham Act jury trials, securing federal district court victories against government regulators, and staving off advertising-related investigations from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sets the firm apart from its competitors. Over the years we have prevailed in some of the toughest advertising-related litigation to go to trial.
Our experience in the courtroom, close ties to federal and state regulatory agencies, intimate understanding of industry self-regulatory bodies, and geographic reach are the primary reasons why clients turn to us for strategic counsel, advice, and legal representation.
