Australian Consumer Law
Our Competition Partners Michael Corrigan, Linda Evans, Bruce Lloyd, Kirsten Webb and Elizabeth Richmond are experienced in advising on a broad range of consumer protection issues under the new Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and the competition law provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act, including misuse of market power, exclusive dealing, third line forcing, structuring distribution, dealer, promotion and agency agreements and other competition law issues such as merger clearances and joint ventures.
We are also experienced in providing timely, practical and commercially-focused advertising and marketing advice, including reviewing proposed marketing campaigns and specific advertisements and promotional material, and establishing systems to be followed by marketing departments to minimise the need for legal review of standard marketing collateral.
