Australia: [Event] Friends of Madgwicks - Bank v Consumer: Shifting Ground
Last Updated: 7 December 2015

Some important recent banking cases have been decided with favourable outcomes for consumers.

For certain cases these decisions have given the Code of Banking Practice a new potency.

Whilst the balance of power remains with the banks, there appears to be a judicial shift (however glacial), toward greater accountability and responsibility for banking institutions and how they treat consumers.

Similarly there is a growing trend of consumer confidence to stand up to banking institutions, ask more and more questions, and no longer simply assume the bank must be right.

Please join Senior Associate, Grant Walker as he explores:

  • Recent changes to the law regarding the obligations of banking institutions
  • The legal effect and contractual force of the Codes of Banking Practice
  • What it means for banks v what it means for consumers

We hope you can join us.
