Competition & Consumer Law

Have you ever been misled or deceived in business? The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (formerly called the Trade Practices Act 1974) protects the consumer and has done so since 1974.  The object of the Act is to enhance the welfare of Australians through the promotion of competition and fair trading and the provision for consumer protection in trade and commerce.

Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky has established a reputation for excellence in the area of competition and consumer law and litigation.  In 2001 the firm was involved in a landmark decision in the High Court of Australia on the application of the misleading and deceptive conduct provisions of the then Trade Practices Act.  This had a profound impact on the real estate industry with consequent ramifications for other professional advisors.

Competition and consumer law continues to play an important role in Australian trade and commerce and is an area of growing importance in economic regulation.  It plays a vital role in ensuring that the Australian economy operates efficiently and effectively.

At Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky we are able to provide specialist advice in all areas of trade practices and consumer and competition law, including misleading and deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct, manufacturer’s liability, restricted trade practices such as misuse of market power and advice on dealing with regulators such as the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).


Client Reviews

David is also highly approachable which is important when dealing with lawyers. There are some lawyers who are so far up themselves that you hesitate to call them, but even though David is a brilliant lawyer, he is also very down to earth.
Les is a wonderful lawyer. He has an amazing grasp of the English language and is always polite and grounding to speak to. With Les there are never problems to which there aren't solutions. And he's always up for the challenge. More than this, and it may seem weird to say this, whenever I meet Les he makes me want to be a good man. He's a real humanitarian and inspires the best in me. For that reason I always look forward to seeing him again.
Les was very professional and always kept my interest at the forefront of his mind. He is thorough and clear in his communications. He is also very supportive and I like how he runs meetings, providing all the options and helping sort out which ones are for me.
I can honestly say that in complex commercial litigation matters, David demonstrates an uncanny ability to think clearly, out of the box, and he adopts a pragmatic and very cost-effective approach. This is especially the case in relation to fixed fee pricing.
