Competition Law and Trade Practices issues

Competition Law (formerly and still often referred to as Trade Practices) can affect many businesses and the way they compete in the market place. Infringement of the legislation can mean heavy fines not just for companies but also for individuals involved in the infringement.

Many people do not realise the width of the law and how their actions can fall foul of the legislation. Bywaters Timms has expertise in providing advice on Competition Law or Trade Practices issues including:

  • Advising on implications of competition law in regard to your business and your dealings in the market place generally
