In contrast to their familiarity with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as a source of regulatory guidance and enforcement, many marketers and advertising lawyers neglect to consider the role of the Department of Justice (DOJ) in enforcing advertising, consumer protection and fraud statutes. The DOJ controls significant criminal and civil litigation resources and, in tandem with other independent agencies like the FTC, brings those resources to bear against businesses and individuals engaged in deceptive and fraudulent advertising practices.
In this episode of Perfect Balance: An Advertising Law Podcast, co-hosts Po Yi and Alexa M. Singh speak with Manatt investigations, compliance, and white collar defense partners Richard S. Hartunian and Jacqueline C. Wolff to explore how the DOJ impacts marketers and what we can expect from the DOJ under the Biden administration.
