Australia: The impact of competition law on leasing
Last Updated: 1 March 2012

In the competitive world of commercial leasing, both landlords and tenants seek to drive a hard bargain, and press for the outcome that best suits their needs. Hard-bargaining is not illegal, but a breach of Australian competition law is. The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 applies to the business activities of both landlords, tenants and their agents and contractors, and any negotiations or contracts, arrangements or understandings reached need to bear this Act in mind.

DibbsBarker invites you to a seminar on the impact of compeition law on leasing.

Michael Sutton, a Senior Associate in DibbsBarker's commercial group will present a seminar on the competition issues that landlords and tenants need to consider when negotiating and enforcing obligations under a tenancy. Topics covered will include cartel conduct, exclusive dealing, third line forcing and unconscionable conduct.

Date: Wednesday, 21 March 2012
Time: 12.30pm - 2.00pm (light lunch provided)
