As we approach the long-awaited Christmas season, Russell McVeagh continues its annual tradition of reviewing the significant developments in New Zealand's consumer law during the year. It has been an eventful year (to say the least) with the first Advertising Standards decision on sponsored content posted by influencers on Instagram, the Court of Appeal reducing the record fine previously imposed on Steel & Tube, and of course the Commerce Commission playing a very active role in consumer-related areas in response to COVID-19.
Take a look HERE to see a snapshot of New Zealand Consumer Law in 2020. We hope you enjoy!
