Our Consumer and Competition Law department is updated and modernized to meet the needs of today. Within consumer law, we counsel clients on product liability and advertisement regulations; within competition law, our focus is heavily on antitrust and unfair competition.
Cavelier Abogados has dealt with numerous product liability cases, acting on behalf of claimants and defendants. We draw on a wealth of experience in product liability litigation, having worked with clients from a wide range of industries. Our specialists take a holistic approach to each case, combining knowledge from other practice areas, including IP and competition law, to provide a broader strategy to clients. We also work with clients to ensure they adhere to advertisement regulations. For example, the regulation regarding how influencers should behave on social media has been newly added to consumer law regulations here in Colombia. This prevents consumers from being misled by false endorsements and prevents influencers from not disclosing endorsed material. Essentially, regulators across industries have recognized the significant impact of rapidly developing technologies on markets, consumers, entrepreneurs, and organizations. Guidelines adjust quickly.
We assess client cases and advise and counsel them on many different fronts. The firm has a thorough degree of expertise in antitrust law investigations that SIC conducts. Such investigations pertain to price-fixing cartels (monopolization of markets), dominance, advertisement law, false advertisement, passing off, and other predatory practices in the market. The practice also places focus on the area of unfair competition. We can interfere when a company performs unjust practices in the market, such as: passing off, trademark infringements, and other predatory practices that attempt to disorganize a business’s operations illegally.
