Consumer Organizations

An amendment to the Consumer Contract Act that came into effect in 2007 gave Qualified Consumer Organizations the right to petition and initiate injunctions in court.  In addition, Qualified Consumer Organizations are able to be involved in out-of-court activities such as collecting information regarding consumer damage and negotiating with companies to seek redress.  In such cases, companies need to respond to Qualified Consumer Organizations by closely adhering to the provisions of the Consumer Contract Act and the Act against Unjustifiable Premiums and Misleading Representations, etc.  N&A provides advice to clients based on our expertise and experience in handling cases relating to consumer law based on the applicable sections of the Consumer Contract Act, Act against Unjustifiable Premiums and Misleading Representations, and Product Liability Act, Product Safety & the Recall of Products and Consumer Litigation.
