Unfair Competition Investigations


Unfair competition takes place when one company benefits wrongfully off the work done by another company, or takes steps to mislead customers by using deceptively similar logos, colors, and names. If you believe you or your business has been the victim of unfair competition practices, a private investigation by VIS shall be able to provide evidence of unethical or illegal business practices.

Unfair competition takes place when one company benefits wrongfully off the work done by another company, or takes steps to mislead customers by using deceptively similar logos, colors, and names. There are many ways for your competitors to come after you, and Unfair Competition is one of the most effective. This is where your competitor benefits wrongfully off of the work you have done for yourself.
