What are Consumer Disputes?

Strict rules exist in Australia that businesses must comply with when selling goods and services, and if these are not adhered to then you face severe penalties and potential court action if you do not comply.

Should you ever find yourself in a position where you have not complied with the relevant legislation and you are faced with penalties or a court proceeding, Kingsford Lawyers has the knowledge and experience to assist you in navigating through this process and to provide you with proper advice throughout. Further, in preventing potential breaches from occurring, we can also assist with the preparation of the relevant documents and procedures relevant documentation for our clients for you to implement in your business practices to avoid these types of issues from arising.

We assist in consumer dispute matters in all Australian jurisdictions. Consumer disputes are governed nationally in all states and by the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and are enforced jointly by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the relevant State and Territory consumer protection agencies. The governing body relating to financial services the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) will enforce the ACL.
