Navigating Commercial & Consumer Law

The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (CCA) will likely apply to almost every trading business. The CCA governs many aspects of a trading business’ operations, from price setting, advertising and marketing claims, product packaging, dealings with competitors and product and service warranties.

Compliance with the CCA ultimately requires a holistic understanding of your obligations in relation to the way in which you interact with your customers and your competitors.

Our competition experience covers:

  • Competition and anti-competitive behaviour
  • Resale price maintenance
  • Exclusive dealing
  • Pyramid selling
  • Restraints of trade
