Deceptive Trade Practices Act
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, or DTPA, is designed to protect consumers, but it can create big problems for businesses. Under this law, anybody selling a product must be aware of what buyers think they are buying. If a buyer feels misled, your business could end up facing legal action.

Protecting Businesses From the Deceptive Trade Practices Act
Under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, a deceptive trade practice is defined very broadly. These claims can involve anything from breach of warranty claims to price gouging and misrepresentation. While our practice is focused on defending companies against these claims, we also provide plaintiff representation for businesses that have suffered as a result of the deceptive trade practices by other businesses.
The Power of the DTPA
Businesses should do everything they can to prevent possible disputes under the DTPA. You do not have to have a contract with a purchaser to be exposed to this act, so you have to be careful whenever you are approached to provide goods and services. There is even exposure for treble damages if your actions can be proven to be intentional. We counsel our clients on making smart choices to avoid potential conflicts.
