Litigation & Insolvency
Our experience in advising clients on all Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) matters, helps them to achieve favourable commercial outcomes and avoid negative publicity or sanctions. We have particular skills in assisting clients in the automotive industry to avoid disputes with the ACCC and to effectively manage any disputes that do arise.
We have significant skills and experience in providing litigation services arising from the Competition and Consumer Act 2010. We act for clients in a range of proceedings including tribunal hearings for companies, federal court proceedings and proceedings commenced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
Consumer transactions that were entered into prior to 1 January 2011 were covered under the Trade Practices Act. Transactions made on or after 1 January 2011 are subject to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010. A schedule to the Competition and Consumer Act – a statement of the law called the Australian Consumer Law – has been adopted by each State and Territory, creating a consistent law throughout Australia.
