Retail, Consumer Goods & Trade

"Compliance work and contentious mandates within the food and retail sector are areas of strength for this team." (Chambers Europe)

Trading and consumer protection are increasingly regulated internationally and nationally. We assist our clients in regulatory compliance, labelling, promotion campaigns and other regulatory matters, as well as in dealings with the regulatory bodies.

We also help our clients to develop template contracts, implement best practices and gain expertise in risk management. We advise on important local and international business agreements, especially in areas where our expertise is most required, such as distribution, supply, marketing, franchise, licensing and other commercial contracts. Some of our partners have hands on experience managing retail companies.
