Fred has been involved in consumer law since the Consumer Credit Act 1974 was passed. In addition to advisory work on consumer issues, he has appeared in a number of significant cases over the years including prices, advertising, food safety, franchise agreements, timeshare and timeshare credit, health and safety, product safety, weights and measures and trade descriptions (now unfair commercial practices). His consumer credit work has involved extensive drafting of regulated agreements under the various regulatory regimes under the 1974 Act, litigation on technical issues and issues such as the former extortionate credit bargain regime as well as representing creditors in licensing matters with the OFT (now the FCA) spanning some 35 years.
