Australia possesses a modern and sophisticated framework for consumer protection in the form of the Australian Consumer Law. The ACL supplements the protections found in other consumer legislation, such as the national Consumer Credit Code, and the common law.
The ACL provides parties with a range of potential remedies for unlawful conduct in commercial and consumer dealings. To name just a few, they include:
- Making unfair or misleading representations about products or services;
- Engaging in misleading, deceptive or unconscionable conduct;
- Employing unlawful or anti-competitive restraints of trade.
Composite Law is experienced in advising and representing parties on alleged infringements of the ACL. Whether you require guidance on making a possible claim, or find yourself the subject of allegations of wrongdoing, Composite Law can assist you with the advice or representation you require
