Special Counsel August Horvath was interviewed for the April 2009 issue of the American Bar Association's Student Lawyer, for an article titled "Hot Practice: Consumer Law." The topic of discussion was Consumer Law and the increasing public interest in the rights and safety of the individual consumer. Mr. Horvath notes that "consumer law affects all Americans, as recipients of marketing messages and purchasers of things." The article discusses how consumer law protects us through many specialty areas, including truth-in-advertising law, intellectual piracy, information privacy, and food and drug labeling, among other areas.
