Anti-competitive, or unfair competition, practices are business activities that unlawfully prevent or reduce competition. Antitrust laws promote healthy competition allowing for products and services to improve, fostering innovation and providing more choices for consumers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) pursues law enforcement, develops policy and research tools, and creates educational programs for consumers and businesses.
Matters requiring the expertise of an unfair competition expert witness might encompass intellectual property matters (such as design infringement, trade secret, patent infringement, trademark infringement), economic damages, lost profits, or false advertising.
Litigation support by an unfair competition expert witness could include an expert report, expert opinion testimony, and expert witness testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience.
