Unfair trade practices
Every corporation that conducts business in North Carolina should be aware of the risks and benefits associated with North Carolina's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. This extremely broad statute permits the award of treble damages and attorneys fees in a broad range of circumstances. Ellis & Winters attorneys have direct experience in the litigation and trial of such claims, particularly in their application in matters involving the theft of trade secrets. Corporate plaintiffs and defendants alike require sound representation in this complex area of North Carolina law.
