Increasingly, compliance is required with the Australian Consumer Law for business dealings. The operation of the Australian Consumer Law and its impact upon business is extensive, and impacts upon the operation of businesses in many ways including:
The inadvertent breaching of these laws is easily done, as many major business operators have found to their detriment. These breaches can result in prosecution by the ACCC, claims for damages, and inability to enforce the terms of an agreement, or any combination of those. In addition, the adverse publicity from those events can be devastating to a business. The prohibitions apply in erespect of dealings with consumers and in many cases small businesses.
Our business lawyers provide advice in relation to Australian Consumer Law compliance and can consider the terms of trade or other commercial agreements and warranties and advise whether they are compliant with the requirements of the Australian Consumer Law.
Furthermore, our lawyers will examine contracts to which you may be a party to identify whether the terms of those contracts may be unenforceable due to failures to comply with the Australian Consumer Law and other protections for consumers and small businesses.
At QBM Lawyers we focus on delivering effective results to clients and have the management, support, and facilities to do so. We understand our clients’ aims, acknowledge their challenges and opportunities and are able to listen and respond to their commercial needs.
