Unfair Trading Practices

At Arida Lawyers, we appreciate the challenges associated with navigating the intricacies of Australian Consumer Law, particularly when it concerns unfair trading practices. This complexity often proves daunting to both individuals and businesses alike.

Unfair trading practices encompass any conduct in the sale and supply of goods and services that is dishonest or fraudulent, specifically designed to give one party an unjust advantage over another. These practices cover a broad spectrum including misleading and deceptive conduct, bait advertising, wrongly accepting payment, and making misleading representations about certain business activities. All these practices fall under the purview of the Competition and Consumer Act (Cth) 2010, a legislative framework established to protect consumers and promote fair trading in Australia.

Our dedicated team at Arida Lawyers leverages its experience and in-depth understanding of the Australian consumer Law to provide clear, practical, and timely advice. We stand ready to assist both consumers and businesses in comprehending and upholding their rights and responsibilities. Whether you believe you may have fallen victim to such unfair trading practices, or a claim has been mistakenly lodged against you, we're committed to providing the assistance you require.
