Changes to laws and shifting legal trends can create both risks and opportunities for new, growing and mature businesses. The challenge for busy business owners is keeping up-to-date with the constantly evolving legal landscape.
Join Nicole Tumiati (Special Counsel, Mills Oakley) as she navigates recent and anticipated legal changes and their implications for small to medium businesses, including:
- Changes to country of origin food labelling – deadline for compliance approaching fast (essential for anyone who sells food in Australia).
- Contract terms and extension of consumer protections to small businesses – do your B2B contracts comply?
- Crowd funding – changes to rules governing how private companies can raise money tipped to be a “game changer” – but what will it mean in practice?
- Insolvency “safe habour” reforms – when and how a company in financial difficulty can continue trade … whilst ensuring directors avoid personal liability.
- Business acquisitions and sales – recent trends in mergers and acquisitions.
