Kelly’s practice has a particular focus on assisting caravan manufacturers & retailers, agricultural suppliers, equipment rental businesses, FMCG manufacturers & retailers, and financiers & consumer credit providers with ongoing compliance and protection. Kelly regularly advises and trains her clients on privacy and data protection, PPS, consumer law, warranties, recalls & refunds, consumer credit, equipment hire & financing, trade practices & competition and trading documentation.
Kelly’s approach has seen her successfully protect clients in dealings with Regulators such as the ACCC and ASIC in circumstance arising out of breaches of the above, and in particular set a precedent to measure Credit Code breaches.
"Clients often tell me that I don't talk like a lawyer. My job is to know the boring (but important) legal stuff, and make it interesting, useful and relevant."
National retailer – in relation to the sale of consumer goods that breached mandatory safety standards. Kelly’s successful negotiations with the ACCC resulted in the retailer entirely avoiding Court action and hefty fines.
Consumer credit provider – in relation to fines and potential jail time for Credit Code breaches. With Kelly’s involvement, the provider avoided all penalties… and ASIC even used the newly-prepared compliance documentation as a yardstick to measure others!
Agricultural buying group – in preparing template trading documentation for members, conducting Consumer Law compliance training, running PPS workshops and speaking at their annual conferences.
