We've been acting for household names including national chains, department stores and supermarkets for over 40 years. As you'd expect with that kind of track record, our retail team has an in-depth understanding of your sector, in terms of both historic commercial issues that retailers have faced across the supply chain and what the future holds for retailers looking to develop their multi or omni-channel offering.
Our expertise and successful track record means we act for a broad range of retailers from multi-national high street names with thousands of units, to high end fashion outlets and independents.
Knowing the commercial drivers for retailers means we can apply our expertise and help shape your strategic decisions. This could involve ensuring the elements of your supply chain are as efficient as they can be, our retail experience complementing our expertise in transport and logistics, through to issues of exposure to the public, brand protection and maintenance.
We know the retail sector faces unique legal issues as it keeps pace with technology and increased consumer expectations. We'll work closely with you and other stakeholders to help you achieve your objectives as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
