What can an FTC defense lawyer do for you?

Our FTC defense law team will fight to resolve your dispute quickly and with minimal disruption to your business. The FTC can be a ruthless opponent, so if the agency is knocking on your door, it’s crucial to have an experienced attorney on your side. 

We’ll aggressively protect your business, minimize disruption, and secure your most favorable outcome. We’ve helped our clients:

  • Avoid long, expensive court proceedings by negotiating consent orders
  • Settle with the FTC for $0 out of pocket

The stakes are sky-high for your business

The FTC can assess penalties ranging from thousands to millions of dollars as a punishment for alleged deceptive marketing practices. They can also enforce strict monitoring of your business’s day-to-day activities to prevent future violations.

The FTC may initiate its investigation by assessing a penalty—but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to pay! An experienced FTC defense lawyer may be able to substantially reduce your penalties, or even have the case against you completely dismissed. Don’t wait another moment to contact Gordon Law Group and get an aggressive attorney on your side!

At Gordon Law Group, we know how to negotiate a settlement with favorable terms. In one recent case, we reduced our client’s FTC penalties by more than $45 million!

If the FTC is breathing down your neck, you can’t afford to wait. Call our experienced FTC defense lawyers NOW for a free consultation!

Did the FTC send you an investigation notice? We can help

The Federal Trade Commission is the nation’s consumer watchdog. It’s the agency responsible for protecting the people’s interests when it comes to truth-in-advertising standards. FTC agents are also the ones who will come after businesses for indulging in questionable promotional schemes or marketing tactics, like negative option marketing and deceptive payment schemes.

They can even refer cases to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. This could be a significant infringement on your quality of life, and it can hinder your ability to make a living.

Because there are so many different types of actions that the FTC and states’ attorney generals could investigate, it’s important to get advice from an attorney who has experience in these types of cases. Some of the common FTC cases include infringements of the CAN-SPAM Act and the Consumer Credit Protection Act.

If you’re facing this type of investigation, consult an FTC defense lawyer. In the pro-consumer, pro-regulation environment of today, resources favor the party with the financial and legal resources to pursue claims. The government has an unlimited amount of legal and financial resources to pursue a claim. So, it could be extremely difficult to defend yourself without the help of an attorney.

Are you overwhelmed by the list of FTC advertising and marketing rules? Don’t have time to sift through thousands of legalese-laden pages?

No worries. That’s where we come in.

Gordon Law Group works closely with businesses and marketers on Federal Trade Commission (FTC) compliance issues. If you’ve received an investigation notification, we know what to do.

Need an FTC marketing compliance review? We’ve got you covered. Whatever FTC compliance or defense issues land on your doorstep, chances are we’ve seen it before. We can review ads for legal compliance before they get published, and we can perform a risk analysis as well. Our firm will review your ad for anything that could be seen as misleading, misrepresented, or inaccurate endorsements or promises.

We’ve also helped many businesses develop in-house standards for advertising. This is important as a defense against alleged violations, because ads can be reviewed before they are sent to an FTC defense lawyer. Having an in-house system can save a great deal of time and money. It establishes a set of standards to which your organization adheres, and it can be helpful should an investigation take place.

FTC defense lawyer: Alternatives to litigation

We understand that if you’re facing an FTC investigation, you just want the problem to go away so you can focus on what matters to you. That’s why we work hard to settle your case outside of court. This can result in a reduction of both civil and criminal penalties, but it can also avoid further investigative measures.

It can also reduce the time and expense involved in building a case and scheduling expert witnesses. It can also reduce the effort involved if it goes to trial. Because these cases can carry stiff penalties, it can reduce your risk of further liabilities. We have been successful in negotiating outside-the-courtroom deals with federal, state, and local regulatory agencies.
