Dispute Resolution & Litigation

Helping you understand your contractual obligations and protecting your consumer rights

Everyone will enter into a contract at some point in their life, sometimes without knowing it. When things go wrong, Attwood Marshall Lawyers are the experts you need on your side.

Contracts (agreements) come in all shapes and sizes. Many are straightforward and others are more complex. People generally enter into contracts in the pursuit of a business venture, or if they are buying something. It’s when one party to a contract does not meet their end of the bargain that things can go wrong.

Some contractual issues that can arise include:

  1. Failure to provide a product or service to the standard required
  2. Supplying or obtaining faulty goods
  3. Non-payment of money (consideration)
  4. Failure to comply with terms and conditions
  5. Breach of confidentiality
  6. Breach of intellectual property rights
  7. Breach of restraints of trade.

 

The Competition and Consumer Law in conjunction with state legislation was enacted to preserve and enhance competition amongst businesses, and to protect consumers. The laws protect businesses and consumers in relation to a range of breaches that may be committed in a commercial setting and provide avenues through which to seek redress for those who have suffered loss.
