We’ve all heard the phrase “free enterprise,” but just how free are businesses in the Bayou State? Every state has statutes regulating businesses; from how they get started and how they are structured to the ways they can advertise and sell their goods and services. There are even laws protecting consumers from price fixing and monopolies (which might be good for board games, but bad for free markets). In this section you can find Louisiana-specific laws on business and commerce, for both companies and consumers, including laws on business formation and the regulation of trade and securities.
