Competition & Consumer Law

Banco Chambers is known for its concentration of competition and consumer law expertise amongst both its senior and junior ranks. They appear for companies, individuals, and the regulator involving issues of anti-competitive conduct, exclusive dealing, misuse of market power, third line forcing and misleading or deceptive conduct.

Banco barristers have advised and appeared in some of Australia’s most significant and high profile competition and consumer law matters in recent years at the trial and appellate level (including for example the proceedings arising from the proposed merger of TPG and Vodafone, the ACCC’s regulatory proceedings brought against Kimberly Clark in respect of its “flushable wipes” product, and in the prosecution of the ANZ and other banks for alleged cartel conduct).
