Business and Professions
Section 17200 of the California Business & Professions Code was designed to protect the average consumer from illegal, fraudulent or “unfair” business practices in the marketplace.
Since its passage into law, however, the section has often been abused by parties who file frivolous Section 17200 lawsuits against upstanding businesses in the hope of extracting a fast, easy settlement from them.
Sinunu Bruni’s attorneys have experience with Section 17200 claims through their work on automobile consumer fraud matters, assisted living care lawsuits and Proposition 65 claims, and have mediated and tried numerous suits involving these types of claims. As a result, we have an excellent track record in protecting manufacturers, car sellers and care providers from specious Section 17200 claims.
