The Consumer Contract Act permits a consumer to rescind a contract on certain conditions and nullifies any clauses, in whole or in part, which unfairly harm the interests of consumers. Further, it provides a Qualified Consumer Organization with the right to demand an injunction against a business operator. This Act applies to all contracts between individuals (not for the purpose of a business enterprise) and business operators; therefore having the potential to significantly impact business operators. The Diet has made amendments to this Act, and further amendments are under discussion at the Consumer Commission. At Nishimura & Asahi, our lawyers have a deep understanding of the Act and have a wealth of experience in a variety of cases enabling them to collaborate their knowledge to provide an essential service to our clients.
