Consumer Law

Any business who deals with consumers needs to be fully aware of their obligations under the consumer laws that operate in Australia. If your business sells goods or services within Australia, there are many complex obligations under the Australian Competition and Consumer Act that you need to adhere to. Failure to comply with these laws can have disastrous consequences for your business and personal life.

Australian Consumer Law places significant obligations on business owners to ensure that systems, procedures and documentation (including warranties) are reviewed carefully. Complaints need to be handled within the strict confines of the law.

The team at FC Lawyers provide strategic and cost-effective advice in all aspects of consumer law to business and consumers. Our experienced legal team assists clients in minimising potential issues of the Act which can result in sizeable penalties.
