Trade regulation is a field of law, often bracketed with antitrust (as in the phrase “antitrust and trade regulation law”), including government regulation of unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive business acts or practices. Antitrust law is often considered a subset of trade regulation law. Franchise and distribution law, consumer protection law, and advertising law are sometimes considered parts of trade regulation law.
- The Florida State Bar , for example, classifies “antitrust and trade regulation law” as one of the areas of legal practice in which board certification is available, which permits certified attorneys to advertise themselves as specialists or experts. See Florida Bar.
