Couvrir les biens de consommation, de la fabrication à la distribution et à la vente au détail

Les entreprises de biens de consommation font souvent partie des pionniers lorsque de nouveaux marchés se développent. Notre empreinte internationale a évolué tout comme notre expérience dans ce secteur. Nous agissons pour le compte d’une clientèle variée, en créant de la valeur grâce à notre impressionnante expertise de la chaîne d’approvisionnement, afin de fournir un « guichet unique » tout au long du cycle de vie d’un produit.

Les stratégies de produits peuvent différer et nous adaptons notre service pour travailler avec des clients exploitant des gammes de produits axées sur le volume, ainsi qu’avec des fournisseurs plus petits axés sur la qualité. Nous veillons régulièrement à ce que les produits soient protégés par des méthodes appropriées de propriété intellectuelle, notamment les marques, les droits d’auteur et les brevets, et à ce que les accords commerciaux de fabrication, d’importation, d’exportation et de distribution soient structurés et appliqués de manière appropriée pour protéger les entreprises. Nous fournissons également des conseils approfondis en matière d’assurance au marché avec une expertise particulière en matière de responsabilité sur les produits et les rappels.

Dans ce secteur hautement réglementé, nous veillons à ce que des stratégies appropriées de gestion des risques soient mises en place. De plus, lorsque les cas s’enveniment, nous comprenons qu’un litige prolongé n’est pas toujours la voie la mieux adaptée sur le plan commercial, en particulier lorsque la préservation de la réputation et de la confiance des consommateurs est primordiale.
