I continually stress to our business clients that they should always sign any contracts, agreements, purchase orders, change orders, or other written documentation with their company's signature block and their representative title, if they intend the agreement to be on behalf of their company. In this day of cut and paste, downloading forms and contracts off the web, a lot of clients seem to forget this wise advice.

The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act or "DTPA" is a set of statutes designed to supplement traditional common-law causes of action.
