Consumer Protection Investigations

Is your business under investigation by the FTC, CFPB, or state Attorneys General? A consumer protection investigation is an inquiry conducted by government agencies to determine whether a business or organization is engaging in unfair, deceptive, or fraudulent practices that harm consumers. If your business or organization is being investigated for potential harm to consumers, Global Legal can help exonerate your business of wrongdoing and defend you in any related enforcement action.
