Wrap up of ACCC vs Drs Ranu, Crowe and Stankevicius

As discussed in our update in the Sep/Oct edition (Page 40), the ACCC had instigated legal proceedings against three associate orthodontists practising in Tasmania. Drs Ranu & Ors had several associate agreements in place for some 15 years. The agreements included direct reference to and a quantification of, pricing, client referral, retention and allocation and also the geographical area in which they could practice, including strong restraint provisions. In fact, the agreements even went on to outline methodology preventing other orthodontists setting up competing practices in northern Tasmania.
