Multi-disciplinary legal team providing dynamic and relevant advice across the retail and consumer sector
We recognise that the hallmark of successful retailers and consumer manufacturers is being a customer-driven business. We strive to replicate this customer focused approach by delivering optimal and bespoke legal services to our clients operating in this fast-paced and exciting marketplace.
Clyde & Co has a global team of retail specialists, led by partner David Wyatt, who are able to assist you with all of your legal requirements across the spectrum from independent retailers and manufacturers to national and multi-national organisations.
We offer legal advice across the retail sector, including property, litigation, employment and immigration, competition, corporate & commercial (including brand protection and intellectual property), health & safety and personal injury.
We understand first-hand the importance of not only managing portfolios and premises, but also making them work commercially. Working with us would be a smooth process - our lawyers work together seamlessly across countries and practice areas as an extension of our clients' teams.
Providing full legal service covering manufacturing and production to distribution and retailing.
Consumer goods companies are often amongst the pioneers as new markets develop in areas and as our international footprint evolved, so did our experience in this sector. We now act for a diverse client base, applying value through our impressive supply chain expertise to provide a "one-stop-shop" across the product lifecycle.
Product strategies can differ and we adapt our service to work with clients operating volume based product lines, as well as smaller quality based providers. We routinely ensure products are protected through appropriate intellectual property methods (trademarks, copyright / design and patents) and that commercial agreements (manufacturing, import / export or distribution) are structured and enforced appropriately to safeguard businesses. We also provide extensive insurance advice to the market, with particular product liability expertise.
In this highly regulated industry, we ensure appropriate risk management strategies are in place. Moreover, when matters escalate, we understand that prolonged litigation is not always the most commercially suitable route, particularly where preserving existingrelations is paramount.
