Competition & Consumer

At Pigott Stinson our business is protecting your business

Our consumer and competition law team can give you the edge over your competition.

In today’s highly regulated corporate landscape the difference between a successful business model and enforcement proceedings by the competition regulator can be accurate and timely advice.

Our team can help you navigate the complexity of competition law whether it be by ensuring a successful merger, structuring exclusive contracts or making the most of your position in the marketplace.

We have considerable experience in negotiating with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to resolve allegations of anti-competitive conduct. We can advise you on how best to avoid enforcement proceedings and ultimately defend them if necessary.

Our team can help you with:

  • ensuring agreements comply with the Competition and Consumer Act
  • advising on the use and misuse of market power
  • advising on cartel regulations
  • working with and defending enforcement proceedings of the ACCC

At Pigott Stinson we focus on protecting our clients’ rights, interests and reputations.
