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.
Supporting retailers on the varied and complex issues that go hand-in-hand with retail operations, we understand the challenges associated with operating and resourcing in an increasingly integrated and borderless global marketplace.
Human resources teams face an increasing need for advice that covers a wide range of jurisdictions to maximise the commercial returns and strategic goals of their businesses. Our global group (encompassing immigration specialists) supports businesses in achieving these goals, whether staff are located in mature or emerging markets.
We understand the constant and demanding nature of the retail industry, necessitating flexible employment arrangements such as work hours and seasonal trends. We take this understanding of industry requirements into account and make managing employees and the associated employment contracts, handbooks and policies a straight forward process. Flexibility is also vital for training employees due to their varied locations – we streamline this through our unique training programmes which can be undertaken on-site wherever employees are located.
In addition to our non-contentious work, we provide a strong contentious offering, handling the full range of disputes, from routine unfair dismissal claims to high value reputational discrimination and whistleblowing claims.
