Insurance law is the name given to the practice of law encompassing insurance, including insurance policies and claims. It can be broken down into two types of categories--regulation of the business of insurance and regulation of claim handling. Insurance bad faith refers to a claim that an insured person has against an insurance company for acts that violate an insurance company’s duty of good faith and fair dealing with the person they insure.
Under the law of nearly every U.S. jurisdiction, insurance companies owe a duty of good faith in dealing with the persons they insure. If they violate that obligation, many states allow the insured person or policyholder to sue the insurance company.
This occurs when a consumer buys something like goods, services, or property, that doesn’t perform as advertised.
It can be a defective product, an insurance or real estate swindle, bad faith denial of insurance coverage, and many other shams.
Consumer fraud protection shields consumers from these deceptions primarily through enforcement of state and federal consumer protections.
Intellectual Property/Trade Secrets
This is a legal field that refers to creations of the mind, such as musical, literary, and artistic works, inventions, and symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce, including copyrights, trademarks, patents, and related rights.
Under this law, the holder of one of these abstract properties has certain exclusive rights to the creative work, commercial symbol or invention by which it is covered.
It can be related to a trade secret, which is a formula, practice, process, design, instrument, pattern, or compilation of information, which is not generally known or reasonably ascertainable, by which a business can obtain an economic advantage over competitors or customers. In some jurisdictions, such secrets are referred to as “confidential information” or “classified information.”

In law, malpractice or professional negligence is a type of neglect in which a professional, under a duty to act, fails to follow generally accepted professional standards, and that breach of duty causes a plaintiff to suffer damages. It is committed by a professional or her/his subordinates or agents on behalf of a client or patient that causes damages to the client or patient.
