E-commerce and digital transformation in the retail sector Helping you navigate change in the retail sector

The digital transformation of all sectors of the economy has been accelerating over the past decade but few sectors have seen the pace of change move as quickly as retail.

From how consumers shop to how goods are moved from manufacturer to retailer to ultimate consumer, the profile of the retail sector and the services that Weightmans provides has changed. Acting for household names for decades has meant that we have grown with our clients and have accompanied them on their digital journey, understanding their commercial drivers as well as new ways to market.

We have assisted clients who are 'born digital' and those who are pureplay online along with those with a multi/omnichannel approach to retail selling everything from FMCG to big ticket items and everything in between, both domestically and internationally.
