Deceptive Trade Practice
Deceptive Trade Practices
Deceptive trade practices are well-known and established commercial law principles and play a fundamental role in defining how businesses operate. In Texas, the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act protects consumers from harmful commercial activities. The Act outlines thirty-two specific actions that are prohibited.
Business Litigation Wins Deceptive Trade Practices Cases
Any business in Texas can face lawsuits by a consumer who sends a registered mail outlining their claims and demanding financial restitution.

Settlements for Deceptive Trade Cases Can Be High
The possible remedies for the entity suing are plentiful, ranging from mental anguish penalties to lawyers’ fees and additional monetary awards. The worst-case scenario for a company or individual under heat is if the court finds that they “knowingly” were operating in violation of state laws.
