Avoiding Price Gouging Claims

Kelley Drye Webinar

August 3, 2022 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm (EDT)

Recently State Attorneys General, the House Judiciary Committee, and many others have weighed in on rising prices in an attempt to weed out price gouging and other forms of what they deem corporate profiteering.” States and federal regulators are carefully looking at pricing as consumers and constituents become more sensitive to the latest changes and price gouging enforcement is an avenue states may be able to use to appease the public. Unlike other emergencies in the past, the current state of supply chain and labor shortages, along with skyrocketing costs for businesses, make it unrealistic for companies to simply put a freeze on any price increases.

With increased scrutiny by states, it is extremely important to have a complete understanding of what is permissible in each state a business operates in. Please join Kelley Drye State Attorneys General practice Co-Chair Paul Singer and Senior Associate Beth Chun for Avoiding Price Gouging Claims.

This webinar will cover:

  • The basics of price gouging laws and related state emergency declarations and how to comply
  • The differences and varied complexities in state laws
  • General best practice tips
  • How AGs prioritize enforcement
