  • Consumer Protection

    The Consumer Protection Section protects Connecticut's consumers by investigating and litigating consumer protection matters under the authority of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act ("CUTPA") and other state and federal statutes. The Section advises the Attorney General and the Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Protection on consumer protection matters and represents and defends the Department of Consumer Protection in court. The Section also advocates on behalf of Connecticut's energy and utility ratepayers in state and federal fora. In addition, the Section educates consumers on how to avoid becoming victims of unfair and deceptive trade practices and, where possible, mediates disputes.
