Consumer Protection Act [Seminar] closed

Learn how to apply the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) to protect your clients and your firm and provide innovative new remedies for clients

This year we are talking very practically about remedies for consumers and how to enforce them in court; about drafting contracts; and athe power of the media. We will also look at the Consumer Tribunal, the various ombudsmen and latest case law – consumers’ successes and challenges with using the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). From a supplier’s perspective, we will focus on the high risk areas for a bank, insurer, retailer, financier and manufacturer etc., and how your client (and your firm) can protect their interests, while changing their consumers into allies. The seminar will also cover plain language, the motor industry, defects in immovable property, timeshare, disclaimers, and much more.
