Our multidisciplinary retail team understands the increasing pressure on retailers to adapt to the ever changing market in which they operate and that, as technology continues to evolve, so will the needs of retailers.
Whilst our extensive experience and knowledge of the sector means we provide excellent advice on the here and now, we also keep an eye to the future. We help retailers get ahead of the law and shape it, making representations to the government on proposed new laws rather than just sitting back and letting them happen.
We ask ourselves, what do retailers want or need. That’s why we developed our fixed fee HR support service, rockhopper, which delivers excellent legal advice without breaking the often dwindling legal budget.
Advising retailers on advertising & brand issues, property issues for multi-site retailers, employment issues relevant to their diverse and transient workforce, the drafting of strategic commercial contracts (including logistics, consumer, franchising, distribution, e-commerce & outsourcing) and managing disputes are just some of the things we do.
Our clients include the UK’s largest department stores, national clothing retailers, designer shoe and clothing companies, retailers in health and beauty and duty free as well as those who are new to the sector.
