We understand the retail sector and deliver commercial tailored solutions to our clients
With traditional product boundaries blurring, the increasing pressure of the internet, a squeeze on high street margins and a shortage of retail space, these are testing times for retailers. Every decision is crucial; we can help.
Through our experience of working with retail clients we have developed a wide knowledge of the sector and the issues affecting it. Our cross-practice team of retail specialists includes leading individuals from corporate, real estate, employment, construction, dispute resolution, IP and competition, with wider support from other key areas across the firm. We regularly share know-how and issues to ensure we are up-to-date with matters of importance concerning retailers and are therefore able to give the best and most tailored advice.
We have a long history of advising retail clients, including some of the UK’s leading companies: Apple, Burberry, Capital Shopping Centres, Diesel, Gap, Harrods, HMV, Krispy Kreme, Land Securites, Nike, Tesco, The Junction, The Mall and Westfield.
