Industries Retail & Wholesale

"Compliance work and contentious mandates within the food and retail sector are areas of strength for this team." 

Trading and consumer protection are increasingly regulated internationally and nationally. That is why we created a retail law team led by legal professionals with experience at international retail companies and regulatory institutions.

Our services cover regulatory compliance, labeling, dealings with regulatory bodies, compiling contracts, advising on risk management, distribution, supply, marketing, franchising, licensing, and other matters. All are provided in consideration of in-house corporate and public legal perspectives. In that way we aim to create distinct added value for your business.

Clients say working with us feels like working with their own business partners rather than with lawyers, and we take that as a compliment.
