Alexandra has recently moved to Australia from Argentina.
Her spoken English is exceptional, but she does not read or write English
terribly well, and she has little experience in the way business is conducted
in Australia. Alexandra ran a successful catering business in Argentina and is
now in the process of establishing a similar business here in Australia.
She approaches Johnny to negotiate the supply by The Lame Duck of vegan
food for her business. During the negotiations, Johnny realises how little Alexandra
understands Australian business practices, and convinces her to agree to pay
much more for his food than he charges similar customers. He tells her that it
is unusual for Australian businesses negotiating such an arrangement to use
legal representation. He also tells her that it is normal practice for a
customer in her position to distribute materials advertising his restaurant to
all of her own customers, and to commit to a contract with him for at least ten
years. Alexandra explains that these arrangements would be extremely unusual in
Argentina, but Johnny insists that that is the way things are usually done and
that she has no choice but to agree to them, since any other supplier would
insist upon the same thing. When Johnny instructs his solicitors to draw up the
contract, he tells them to make it especially complicated and legalistic.
Alexandra signs the contract agreeing to all of Johnny’s requirements, and she
does so without seeking independent legal advice or reading it herself. A few
weeks later after talking to some helpful Australian friends, she realises that
she may have done the wrong thing. Can Alexandra take advantage of ACL s 21?
