False and Misleading Advertising Survey Expert

RHONDA HARPER, MBA

False and misleading advertising survey expert Rhonda Harper knows that cases rely on survey evidence to show whether particular claim or product packaging creates a misleading impression and that it has an impact on consumer purchasing decisions.

Specifically, Rhonda Harper knows that a false and misleading advertising survey must:

  1. Demonstrate that the advertising or claim at issue contains a false or misleading statement or inference about its own or a competitor’s product;
  2. Prove that the claim at issue has actually deceived or is likely to deceive a substantial portion of the relevant audience; and
  3. Show the deception is material and is likely to influence purchasing decisions.

The Plaintiff's damages expert will use this information to show how the deception has injured or is likely to cause lost sales or loss of good will for the complainant.
