Webinar: False Advertising Law for the Generalist In-House Counsel




June 14, 2017 12:30PM–1:30PM


Advertising can take many forms, including statements about a company’s products on websites and social media platforms. A wrong step can result in serious consequences, including legal challenges from competitors, consumers, the Federal Trade Commission, and other regulatory agencies.

In this 60-minute webinar, designed exclusively for in-house counsel and business executives encountering legal issues, you will learn how you can protect your company against legal challenges based on its advertising practices. You will also learn what options are available if your competitors are making false or misleading statements in their advertisements. We will use real-life examples to illustrate the legal principles, and explore how the choice of venue can be outcome-determinative in a false advertising dispute.
