Companies in Louisiana and elsewhere have to be careful in the way they conduct business. The owners of a business are expected to act in a certain way, and specific actions are looked down upon when they are carried out continuously by anyone within a company. Deceptive trade practices not only harm the people the company does business with, but also could harm the reputation and longevity of a business. Therefore, any accusations of unfair business practices or deceptive trade practices should be taken seriously.
Because competition often guides businesses to alter the way they do business, some companies might decide to take extreme measures to gain more business. While this could be legal in some cases, if these actions include acts such as misleading or making false claims, this is considered a deceptive trade practice.
