Australian consumer protection laws have recently undergone significant changes. Since the start of 2011, all Australian businesses now operate under a single consumer protection law: the Australian Consumer Law. The changes will have implications for businesses as the ACCC has been active in using its new investigative and penalty powers to ensure compliance.
Corrs regularly assists clients in meeting their obligations under the ACL, including implementing compliance initiatives, advising on proposed conduct and dealing with the ACCC in investigations.
Corrs act for a wide range of suppliers and manufacturers on their consumer facing obligations.
Our clients include: BP, Johnson& Johnson, Dell and Woolworths.
