As a consumer, you should be able to trust that the services and products you purchase will deliver as promised by the seller's advertising descriptions. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Many companies rely on false or deceptive advertising practices to lure shoppers, boost sales and even get people to buy a particular food, which has resulted in myriad food-related class action lawsuits.
If you have been the victim of false advertising practices, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages. The Chicago lawyers at Markoff Leinberger have handled false advertising cases, and we can make sure your rights are protected every step of the way.
This page will provide you with a basic overview of false advertising practices, but it cannot offer you advice on your specific case. The best way to learn about your rights is to speak with our lawyers.

Class Action False Advertising Lawyers
There are a variety of federal and state laws which prevent companies from intentionally misleading consumers through false or deceptive advertising practices. These laws protect your rights and give you the ability to recover damages if you have been a victim of these fraudulent actions.
In many instances, the amount of monetary damages suffered by an individual plaintiff is too small to justify filing a false advertising claim. But when combined with the cases of other victims who suffered damages from the same false advertising, the recovery can be substantial. For this reason, many false advertising claims are filed as class action cases.
At Markoff Leinberger, we can represent plaintiffs in class action cases involving a variety of false advertising and deceptive marketing practices, including:
- Bait and switch schemes
- Deceptive labeling
- Hidden limits and fees
- False promises
- Failure to disclose important information
- Unadvertised surcharges
- Footnote disclaimers
- Disclaimers inside shrink-wrapped containers
