Marketing Legally: Insights on Social Media Advertising and E-Commerce

If you have an e-commerce store, are a social media influencer, own your own brand or are thinking about starting a business, then you’re not going to want to miss this week’s episode of The Alden Report where I am joined by attorney Robert Freund.

While in law school at UC Davis, Mr. Freund clerked for the Consumer Protection Unit of the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, where he worked on civil and criminal cases involving fraud, deceptive advertising, anticompetitive practices, and other economic crimes.  Mr. Freund also served as an editor of the UC Davis Law Review.
