Increasing regulatory action in the area of competition and consumer law is beginning to capture the attention of many Australian businesses and their in–house legal teams.
A number of businesses are being caught out by relying on established industry practices that are prohibited by the law. This attracts significant risks and potential financial, criminal and civil penalties for companies that are not abiding by the changing rules and regulations.
But how well do you understand the full impacts and risks across your organisation?
In this recording, David Grace and Adelaide Hayes discuss latest developments in competition law and the impacts for in-house legal teams and Australian businesses. They explore recent cases of anti-competitive conduct and share practical steps that can be taken to address competition law risks, including in the areas of:
• concerted practices
• exclusive dealing
• misuse of market power
• mergers, amalgamations and acquisitions control.
