California remains at the forefront of consumer litigation, enforcement and regulation. We are pleased to provide our 2021 Annual Overview of California’s Unfair Competition Law (“UCL”) and Consumers Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”).

The Annual Overview includes a comprehensive summary of both the state of the law and noteworthy recent developments. Decisions from California state and federal courts in 2020 provided important direction under the UCL and CLRA in the areas of arbitration, federal court jurisdiction, the authority of public prosecutors, federal preemption, pleading requirements and the basis for plaintiffs’ recovery of attorneys’ fees. As in prior years, litigation and enforcement proceedings under the UCL and CLRA remained vigorous. We expect enhanced activity in 2021.
