Competition and Consumer Law

The Australian Consumer Law provides certain rights and protections for the consumer when dealing in commercial transactions. These protections include the right to a repair, replacement or refund for faulty goods, or compensation for damages and loss with a faulty service.

We can review your terms of trade to ensure they comply with the Australian Consumer Law and provide you with the necessary protection. If you currently do not have any terms of trade, we can draft them to suit your business and your needs.

Ensure you are adequately protected and contact one of our team today!


Establishing a trust can be a way of maximising the protection of your assets. There are several types of trusts, the most common being a discretionary trust or a unit trust.  A discretionary trust the assets are held by the trustee for distribution to a variety (or class) of beneficiaries listed in the trust deed.  In a unit trust the trustee must distribute the assets in proportion to the number of units a beneficiary holds.  We can assist in establishing a trust by preparing the necessary documents.

At times we understand a trust may need to be amended. We can provide advice in this respect to ensure it is within the trustee’s power to do so. If it is, we can draw up the necessary documents to make an amendment.
