Hunt & Hunt acts for major automotive dealers across Australia, providing legal advice on operational issues and corporate compliance.
Australia's automotive industry is one of the most open and competitive in the world. In the face of industry challenges such as tightening regulations, increased competition and fluctuating fuel and materials costs, many of the country's largest automotive dealers turn to Hunt & Hunt for fast and accurate legal advice.
To keep pace with these issues as they arise, our industry specialists work quickly to identify what needs to be done to protect dealers' interests. We regularly advise dealers on operational issues such as commercial leasing, supply agreements, employment issues, franchise and consumer law.
