Advertising lawyers specialize in product claims made to consumers. Different products have different rules—for example, cigarette ads may not be shown on television, and prescription drug ads must include information about side effects. Advertising laws require truthful product descriptions on packaging and labels.

You would also consult an advertising attorney if you have made a purchase based on an advertised claim that you now believe to be false.
